A Practice Guide
Reminiscence is a valuable tool for the professional carer as well as those looking after a family member or friend. It enhances and enriches the care relationship, and benefits both the person being cared for and the carer. This fully-updated fourth edition is full of practical information on planning and running successful reminiscence work.
This book offers new insights into the application of a well-established approach to people who have traditionally been thought not to benefit from them. It demonstrates that rehabilitation has positive outcomes for people with dementia's quality of life and self-esteem, especially if rehabilitation is seen as a positive philosophy of practice.
