About the Cause

There are approximately 2 million older adults living in nursing homes today. Many of them suffer from isolation and loneliness. Recorded stories are able to bring joy and a human connection to combat those negative feelings when in person connection isn’t possible. These video stories have also proven especially helpful for activity directors in memory care units, where they use the stories as memory triggers for patients with dementia.

In the Event

Volunteers will work with a professional actor to learn storytelling skills and in small groups identify and develop story ideas that connect us through the generations. They will record a 1-2 minute video story on a computer or a smartphone before uploading it for an older adult in a nursing home or assisted living center to view.
