Storytelling and Reminiscing with Family for the Holidays


The holidays can be a tough time for families who have a loved one with memory loss.

Relatives with memory loss might not be able to recall those times and can’t participate in the conversation, feeling left out, isolated and sad. However, there are still ways to reminisce about the past that includes the entire family.
