One Legacy, LLC is dedicated to the art of capturing people’s stories. Our facilitated and structured reminiscence activities are specially designed to identify, collect and record real life stories that form our personal legacy – One Legacy for each of us.
Sharing for Senior Communities
The time residents spend living in a community is ideal to reflect upon their life journey. Life Enrichment Teams can now utilize Legacy Sharing for Senior Communities and offer residents an outlet to ponder and then recount their personal life stories. Developed to include purposeful, family-focused games, tools and awards, Legacy Sharing for Senior Communities exercises participants’ brains and adds to their quality of life by promoting enhanced social interaction.
“The Legacy Sharing Program has been a magnet for getting residents out of their rooms and socializing more often with each other. Sharing their memories and telling their stories with a facilitated group of active listeners, clearly energizes the participants. As a result of the program, residents are frequently drawn out of their shells and motivated to visit with and learn more from each other.” – Teresa R., Activities and Volunteer Coordinator, Sunrise Senior Living
Legacy Sharing for Families
Within each of us is a great story to be told.
After a loved one passes, their treasured stories can be permanently lost. But now, those cherished histories can be saved for families to revisit their own personal legacy. Through Family Legacy Sharing our Certified Story Collector will gather your loved one’s personal stories through a series of comfortable one-on-one conversations. Throughout the conversation, your loved one will be prompted to retell their life story and share any insight or advice they may have for future generations. Families will then receive either a video biography, narrated slide show or hard-bound book of their loved one’s conversations.
“People need to tell their stories and pass down their legacy – it’s as important a stage of life as learning how to walk or crawl.” – Kitty Axelson-Berry of Modern Memoirs, Inc. *

MindsEye Radio serves people who cannot read the printed word. Community Outreach Coordinator Amelia Christ spoke with Mike Stith, Founder of One Legacy, about something Mike calls “legacy sharing” – the opportunity to pass on the stories of one generation to the next.
