Abstract

A life album is a collection of selected memorabilia, photographs, and archival and other material that describes an individual's life in a photograph book format. During a summer research program, 13 long-term care residents created life albums that contained material from their past and current life. Some pages were left unfilled to allow material to be added in the future. These albums provided residents, families, and staff members with a means to recall life events. This article reports their perceptions of creating such albums.
