Dr. Claire McAuley talks about the InspireD project.
People living with dementia who have problems with their short-term memory often find it easier to remember things about their past. Reminiscence draws on this strength by supporting people to share their life experiences, memories and stories and in doing so to maintain or build connections with other people.
Research has shown that reminiscence can improve mood, wellbeing, quality of life and relationships for people living with dementia.
