Encouraging reminiscence greatly benefits the elderly, both individually and in social groups. Thinking of the past and recalling treasured memories not only provides relaxation and pleasure; self-identity and self-worth are strengthened, and opportunities to make friends and socialise are increased. Care Shop recognises the importance of reminiscence, and offers activities designed by experts to maximise the effectiveness of this proven form of therapy.

Elderly residents can gather together in groups to play reminiscence games, which help them to share memories of past events, places and people in a stress-free environment. Activities, tasks and questions in the games can act as useful triggers to aid recollection and prompt memories that may have been forgotten. Inhibitions and awkwardness are overcome by the structured format of the game, and relaxation and fun help reduce stress. Games encourage group participation and carers can either join in, or observe and monitor.
