Reminiscence is a free-flowing process of thinking or talking about one’s experiences in order to reflect on and recapture significant events of a lifetime.
We all live in the present, yet we still carry our “past” selves with us throughout our lives. We are part of a rich history that needs to be shared and preserved.
The stories we tell about our lives are also important sources of self-identity and enable us to explore and relate our past to the present.
Older people often lose what has defined them: family, spouses, friends, careers, and their homes. They need to remember who they were to help define who they are today.
Reminiscence offers a chance to re-examine one’s life, pursue remote memories, recall past events and accomplishments, and seek personal validation.
