The senior with the help of the buddy will answer 2-3 questions a day or 10-20 questions a week. Answering the questions can be done on their own or they can use the weekly class time to answer the questions.
The buddy will gather photos/memorabilia that relate to the questions.
The buddy will scan the photos/memorabilia at least 300 dpi (jpeg format) and upload them to the online publishing account that I will provide the senior. At the end of the class each senior will receive a personal hard bound storybook that will be presented to them at the publishing party.
This sets The Nursing Home apart from other communities and provides valid, self-esteem boosting, valuable activity for your monthly calendar. It helps with admissions - families will know their loved ones’ stories will never be forgotten, creates opportunity for volunteers in your community to get involved, strengthen rapport among staff and seniors by getting to know the residents by reading their books and creates a feeling of unity and friendship among the residents, staff, volunteers and management.
Our mission is to help seniors and others everywhere write and publish their life stories so they will never be forgotten. Please Contact me if interested in starting My Life My Story Program in your area.
