Overview

Reminiscence is an invaluable means of promoting confidence and supporting identity in people with dementia. This practical guide explains how creative reminiscence work can stimulate and enrich communication and contribute to positive relationships between people with dementia and those who care for them.

Based on ideas developed and tested internationally over a period of ten years, the book offers imaginative approaches to reminiscence and a wealth of resources for use in a wide range of situations. It provides a useful planning tool for organising and structuring group and individual reminiscence work, with detailed descriptions of activities that can be used to improve quality of life in a variety of care settings, the community or the home environment.

Remembering Yesterday, Caring Today highlights the value of combining good practice in reminiscence with a person-centred approach to dementia and is an essential guide for professional and family carers.
