ACA is partnering with LifeBio to create
The Memory Project: Reminiscing Made Fun
Here’s a truly engaging activity that the whole family can enjoy, even from a distance.
Today is the day to begin to record your life story or your family member’s story. It’s not complicated. You can do as much or as little as you want every day. LifeBio helps people ask the right questions to bring out the best memories and stories with the ultimate goal of creating a lasting and priceless legacy.
Set a goal of asking and recording at least one question a day. It’s a great way to connect from a distance. Children can get involved and learn more about their elders! Siblings can take turns asking questions and recording answers from afar.
The possibilities are endless!
LifeBio makes it easy for YOU and your family to write and share your unique memories and experiences with your loved ones. LifeBio provides an online template of biography and autobiography questions that have been carefully crafted to bring out interesting and priceless life stories.
Topics include family history, people that made a difference, childhood memories, historical events, the “real world” of adulthood, and life lessons and beliefs. Just ask and answer the thought-provoking questions and watch an incredible life story unfold!
Every person has a story to tell and every person should have a lasting legacy.
During these uncertain and trying times, LifeBio is working with ACA to make reminiscing an easy and fun experience for the whole family.
There are several ways to engage with LifeBio to learn more about your loved one.
