Each memory care resident at Discovery Village At Stuart will work on a handcrafted My Story book that charts their journey throughout their stay with as well as way before that. When they first make the move to our community, our professional team members will work with each resident to complete this personalized book together, leaving behind a legacy for children and grandchildren to cherish.
About Our Handcrafted My Story Book
Every older adult has led a richer life than we can imagine. Sure, parents and grandparents can pass down their family history through oral tradition, but without a written record, this can easily get lost or forgotten through the generations. With a handcrafted My Story Book, our memory care residents can take a trip down memory lane, working on one particular skill that their affliction has taken from them.
In this book, our residents can chart down significant life events that took place when they were younger, before their children and grandchildren were around. Family members also have the chance to contribute to this book with a poem, quote, or anything they would like to add. We believe that this handcrafted book is a good way for residents to bond with their family members and leave behind a treasured keepsake for many generations to come.
