Reminiscence therapy may increase subjective well-being in persons with dementia
Reminiscence therapy is a popular psychosocial method in dementia care aiming at increasing subjective well-being through sharing memories from one’s personal past. This article summarizes findings from the past decades of research based on three reviews which, despite mixed findings, methodological inconsistencies and conceptual vagueness in the field, overall report reminiscence therapy to be a potentially effective psychosocial intervention with regard to increasing subjective well-being.
