Abstract 1. For some, reminiscing is a beneficial coping strategy, helping to compensate for losses or self-care deficits they may be experiencing. 2. Implementation of this intervention in the cases presented here suggests that it is an effective way of promoting self-esteem and enhanced coping in some situations. 3. Nursing theories are potential frameworks for the use of reminiscence therapy as a nursing intervention or as a means of creating meaning with the person. 4. Future implications for practice lie in exploring the phenomenon of reminiscence within holistic nursing frameworks, such as Rogers' (1970) or Parse's (1992), enabling well-being and quality of life as a goal.
