Reminiscence therapy for those with dementia works when little other activities will. The reason why, is simple. When you reminisce long term memories are accessed. The same part of the memory that stays intact longest in those with dementia. I can sum up the secrets of great reminiscence activities in two words. Good questions.

However the real trick is creating subjects and questions that have meaning to those using your service. That don’t traumatise or open up old wounds in those taking part.

I help activities providers working in the community, supported living, sheltered housing and care homes to create and deliver great reminisce and life histories. Co-ordinators can spend from a day to three days learning how.

The aim of the reminiscence therapy and dementia course is to provide those who attend the skills needed to develop and lead reminiscence and life history work.

1. Provide person centered activity programmes
