Abstract

The ageing population is a world wide phenomenon. In the process of ageing, the elderly need to adapt to physical, psychological, and social changes. For this reason, how to help the elderly to increase their capacity for self-transcendence, and to improve their mental health and quality of life is already an important issue for nursing staff. Recently, numerous studies have verified that reminiscence therapy resulted in obviously decreasing depression symptoms, improving mental health and reduced loneliness. Reminiscence therapy also resulted in the relief of negative emotions, improved self-esteem, increased satisfaction with life, and decreasing mental and social problems. Reminiscence therapy should be considered as an independent nursing intervention with positive results in the care of the elderly. The purpose of this systematic literature review is to provide an overall review of the theory, function, patterns and evidence base of reminiscence therapy. This article may serve as a point of reference for nurses in clinical practice.
