Providing a platform to share stories reduces isolation, connects across generations and other divides, and celebrates creativity.
Objects are conversation starters. They can connect us to the every day, to each other, and to memories of places, experiences and people.
Documenting and sharing objects and stories in an exhibit format validates and values people and their contributions to our collective family and community histories.
Facilitating Storytelling for Caregivers
This workshop trains caregivers in the object-based storytelling techniques originally developed for the Recollection project. The technique uses personal objects (mementos or familiar every day objects) to spark conversations across generations. The technique has been adapted for use by families who are isolated due to COVID-19 and is suitable for individuals with early to moderate stages of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
