The Legacy Sharing program is an on-site, story-therapy activity designed for groups or one-on-ones in Senior Living Communities. The curriculum is appropriate for assisted living, independent living or memory care, and it includes a library of games and tools with publishing of Keepsake Storybooks available.
According to Geriatrics & Gerontology International (June 2007), reminiscence programs enhance the remaining capacity and the adaptation to a daily life in elderly people with Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia–especially if sustained to maintain the effect over time.
Legacy Sharing helps participants experience positive social interaction. The brain-stimulating activity improves emotional satisfaction, health and quality of life. The story therapy activities enhance communication with family and caregivers and set the stage for creating a personal legacy for individuals and their loved ones.
