The One Legacy Team has participated in numerous workshops that we developed and introduced to the community. During the process of writing and sharing personal stories, something remarkable often happens. The experience triggers memories and builds emotional connections between people. Good stories surprise and delight us. They make us think, feel – and remember. They help us understand each other and how relevant these stories are to preserving our existence.
We have had the honor of bringing the Legacy Sharing Program to seniors in assisted living, independent living and memory care communities that embrace the magic of storytelling. During the “Train the Team” workshops, the activity directors have had a chance to discover how their own recollections and revelations touch their heartspace.
The Legacy Sharing Program by One Legacy is designed to encompass the whole human being. It is a holistic wellness approach that includes physical, mental, social -and spiritual – experiences.
