The benefits of nostalgia therapy are well-researched, and go beyond reminiscence therapy (RT), as there is no expectation placed on the individual living with brain change to recall or remember particular people or events, which can cause distress. Nostalgia is particularly helpful for those who are in life review and enjoy conversing or hearing about ‘simpler times’ or the ‘good old days’ without reference to personal photos or keepsakes, which may not be pleasant or available. Simply put, nostalgia is clinically proven to help people with memory loss to cope, and often, to thrive.
