Everyone has a unique life story that they have lived and wish to share with others. Retirees in particular have many years of experience and memory that they can pass on, especially to their family members and friends. This is how they can make a difference in the lives of others. The best way to do so is to create a handcrafted My Story Nook.
About The My Story Book Program
These handcrafted journals are made to help retirees write down their lives and the significant events which happened over the years. This provides many important functions, such as building a stronger connection to family members while also preserving a legacy that others can cherish. Creating a story book provides a first-hand account of the real-life experiences of these older adults.
Benefits of Having a My Story Book Program in Our Senior Living Community
The main advantage of writing a story book is that it documents your life and accomplishments in a way that can be accessed and read by future generations. Many grandparents pass down stories by sharing verbally with their children and grandchildren but this information is easily lost and not readily accessible. By taking the time and effort to write the stories down and publish them in a book, your children will have a physical manuscript that they can access at any time.
As part of the SHINE® Memory Care program, the book can provide more detailed information about who you are and the things you did during your youth. Creating a My Story Book will help others learn more about your personality, the foods you enjoy, the type of things you like, and the places you traveled to. This is helpful for both family members and caretakers. Bringing up the information and past experiences can challenge one’s memory and keep their mind sharp as well.
