Reminiscence as a mental and social process gains more meaningfulness when people get older. In this paper, we present a study of the needs and potential of a reminiscence digital tool to support well-being of seniors living at home. The results show that whilst reminiscence is perceived important social and family activity for the seniors, and they are quite familiar with using computers and Internet in their daily life, there still are challenges for the seniors to utilize digital tools for reminiscence. In particular, digital tools should support better the social aspects of reminiscence.
