“Writing Life Histories” is primarily designed as a practical handbook professional staff responsible for care of the elderly. It also, however, will give much useful guidance to the families and friends of elderly people.

Exploring life histories, both individually and in groups, not only is an aid to memory strengthening for the elderly person or people involved but can also be extremely valuable to carers as they come to know and understand them better. In a professional context there are, of course, ethical issues to be considered and these are given due attention.

“Writing Life Histories” provides step-by-step guidance, gives ideas for different types of life history, and suggests a variety of activities and strategies for triggering and articulating memories. For the elderly, especially if memory has already begun to fade, this is an extremely helpful approach to maintaining a level of constructive mental engagement and promoting memory improvement.
