Therapeutic reminiscence is the process of recalling past experiences to enhance self-understanding, promote communication and positive interaction between individuals. Reminiscence therapy allows individuals to enhance mental health and promote self-esteem. It utilizes a variety of reminisce materials such as pictures, objects, and therapeutic reminiscing games to improve cognitive functions and/or mood. It can be a positive and valuable experience for individuals living with dementia to recollect meaningful past events.
