Reminiscence Therapy

The use of life histories — pictorial, written or spoken — to improve psychological well-being.

Reminiscence therapy is one of the most popular psychosocial interventions in dementia care. It has been shown that life story work paired with reminiscence therapy can have a significant impact on wellbeing and happiness. This type of therapy is an effective treatment for care recipients with:
- Memory loss
- Dementia
- Depression
- Anxiety

StoriiCare reminiscence sessions

Our sessions are simple and fun. Crucially, they do not add to a carer's workload. A carer would begin a session with viewing and discussing content within a service user’s Media section.

Importantly, activity reports from these sessions can be provided to regulatory bodies, evidencing the quality of the care provided.

Positive effects of reminiscence therapy

Improvements in cognition and mood
Reductions in strain experienced by care-givers and relatives
Improvements in functional abilities of those with dementia
Reductions in the symptoms of depression
Raised self-esteem
Improved communication
Stimulation and entertainment

reminiscence therapy research


A large number of studies have focused on the effectiveness of reminiscence therapy. Particularly with regards to those living with cognitive impairments such as dementia. Such studies tend to focus on two particular measurements: improvements in cognitive function and improvements in quality of life. Our sessions are based upon best practice and successful outcomes. StoriiCare is continually updated and improved upon as new studies and trials are published. Want to find out more about Dementia? See our Useful links page.
