How reminiscing can help someone with dementia

For people living with dementia, as cognitive abilities decline it can be difficult to maintain personal identity. Reminiscing about the past can help someone to stay aware of their past and cherished memories for longer.

Whether you look at old photographs, look at treasured belongings or listen to favourite music from the past, all types of reminiscence can help someone with dementia to maintain a connection to the people and places that they love.

Experts say that talking about the past can help reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness, help develop positive feelings – reducing stress and agitation, improve confidence and give the person an opportunity to talk about family and friends.
