Dementia & Alzheimers

Lost & Forgotten Memories

 

How we can help to stimulate past memories

It’s called Reminiscence Therapy and it’s a proven aid to those suffering with memory loss. Playing old familiar film clips, Video & Audio tracks to those with Dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease can both comfort and reassure those who suffer from this debilitating affliction.

For people with Alzheimer’s a simple activity such as this can really help create meaning in their lives & help them connect with past interests and experiences. It also gives family members a chance to become engaged & discuss fond family experiences and memories.

Although it doesn’t necessarily slow the progression of Alzheimer’s, time spent with your loved one reviewing these items can improve their quality of life & help lessen the agitation, confusion and depression that they may be experiencing.
