Reminiscence activity is commonplace as an activity that is widely recognized as beneficial to people with dementia. It can offer alleviation of the burden of care for those who look after people with this disease. In reminiscence activities, people may use items including photographs representing their lives, in some form. Reminiscence systems are the use of technology to support reminiscence work. This paper describes a study that carried out an evaluation of card-based versus device-based reminiscing using photographic images. The outcome of the study demonstrated no difference between traditional and device-based reminiscing of photographic images, indicating no barriers to the use of systems for reminiscing activities.
