There is a pressing need for creative, therapeutic approaches that appeal to a culturally and linguistically diverse population of older adults. One such approach is memory mining, a developmentally and culturally appropriate intervention strategy that can increase the communicative engagement of older adults with cognitive-communicative challenges. This presentation provides a foundation for understanding age-related demographic, cognitive, and linguistic changes and how memory mining, also known as facilitated reminiscence, can lead to better communication outcomes for this population.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • Describe demographic, cognitive, and linguistic characteristics of older adults
  • Incorporate memory mining when designing individualized age- and culturally appropriate communication interventions for older adults with cognitive-communicative challenges
  • Instruct caregivers and others to use memory mining to engage older adults in meaningful everyday communicative interactions
