About Our Handcrafted My Story Book Program

Our dedicated staff will work with our residents to write about themselves and their life. They will also take a series of photos which depict stories about what they have been doing recently, and collate them into a book. The purpose of these books is to give individuals something that they can look back on when they’re older. It allows them to go through each page and recall their memories from that period in their life. This is an interactive way to capture memories for our residents and their loved ones!
