Our mission is to promote healthy aging, combat ageism, and reduce social isolation in older adults by sharing and preserving their life stories. Our small and individualized life story workshops enable participants to bond with fellow community members over life experiences, and to audio record their stories in a life legacy project. In each workshop, our participants--or storytellers, as we like to call them--have the opportunity to exchange their meaningful life stories with other participants in the group. An experienced workshop facilitator comes to each session with two prompt questions, then audio records and transcribes each life story for our participants to keep in a virtual memory book on our password-protected online platform. In these life story workshops, our storytellers strengthen their social connections and know their life stories are respected, valued, and remembered.
