What is

REMINISCENCE

THERAPY?

A non-pharmacological intervention that improves self-esteem and provides older individuals with a sense of fulfillment and comfort as they look back at their lives and converse with others about past experiences.

Photographs, foods, smells, and music can activate reminiscence, but Virtual Reality proves to be a more effective treatment.

A 360-image is highly immersive and can "trick" the brain into interpreting a virtual environment as real life.

I liked doing it...When I got launched off that air craft carrier the other day I was looking at everybody and the activity on that deck. Now, I was in the Navy, but I was never on a carrier and that was quite interesting.

I couldn't believe that I really was seeing the pictures that I used to see with my dad and I actually was in the middle of it all.

Our memories of the distant past are opaque, but they still reside in our brains and VR can unlock those memories that we can so greatly benefit from.
