Reminiscence in dementia: A concept analysis
Dempsey et al. (2014) analyse the concept of reminiscence in dementia. They identify a range of definitions and the use of surrogate terms, and that reminiscence is a process that takes place in stages in the context of interaction with others. They conclude that reminiscence is an effective psychosocial intervention and that developing the concept further would benefit from an operational definition.
