Sharing memories can benefit speaker and receiver

Wednesday, August 29, 2012 by The Press in Opinion

Once upon a time, older adults who spent hours reminiscing were told to "stop living in the past."

Today, reminiscing by the aging population is no longer considered a negative sign of old age. Seniors are encouraged by health care professionals and social workers to remember and review decades of life experiences.

Personally, I'm an addict for such history. Whenever an elderly person wants to look back and talk about his or her life, I'm all ears.
