Research output: Contribution to journalConference article

Abstract

The purpose of this paper was to introduce the significance of applying group reminiscence therapy on dementia elders in order to promote their health and quality of life. Several outcome variables associated with dementia patients, including depressive symptoms, cognitive impairment, behavior competence and physical functioning were suggested. The procedure of group reminiscence and cultural sensitive themes designated into each group reminiscence intervention session were introduced. The reminiscence intervention demonstrated effects for alleviating depressive symptoms and cognitive impairment, however it did not show any effectiveness on increase in behavior competence and physical functioning in elders with dementia. In conclusion, reminiscence can be a care modality of promoting healthy aging.
