Melia, S. Continuity in the International Journal lives of elder Catholic of Aging and Human women religious. Development (1999) 48(3), 175-189. Qualitative research study in grounded theory tradition analyzed taped life review interviews with sisters of three religious orders to examine the question of whether the old-old undergo additional developmental stages after reaching ego integrity when they are young-old. , & Coleman, P, Nostalgic memories in dementia: A case study. A case study that demonstrates it is possible for older people with dementia to reminisce and that this is meaningful for them particularly, in the face of the losses associated with dementia.

Questioning care staff about their experiences of reminiscence work in residential and nursing settings, two separate examples were obtained where, unexpectedly, older people had reacted with extreme emotion (Bornat & Chamberlayne, 1999). We were offered interpretations by staff of what ensued. We were told that a man disliked having cot sides on his bed due to his second world war experiences, and that a woman had difficulties about bathing because of her personal history. While not wanting to deny that these people had endured genuinely traumatic and abusive experiences, evoking uncontrollable emotions in their recall, there is a possibility that, by ascribing these episodes solely to past trauma, present abusive or insensitive care practices and interpersonal actions are ignored.

It is paradoxical that many of the debates and discussions developed in oral history and reminiscence and life review research are so similar, while conducted in quite separate universes, often with a singular lack of awareness of the other's existence, concerns, or expertise. Issues such as contexts for remembering, the effect of trauma on remembering, storytelling, the interview relationship, ethics, the nature of memory, the role of remembering in establishing identities, and finally, outputs and dissemination are all typical of debates in each domain.
