Reminiscence at Alzheimer Scotland

Reminiscence means sharing life experiences, memories and stories from the past. Where a person with dementia is more able to recall things from many years ago than recent memories; reminiscence draws on this strength. Objects, video clips, photos as well as sounds and smells can be helpful in reminiscence, invoking memories and stories that give both comfort and stimulation.
