I received this lovely testimonial the other day.
"Thank you Sarah for a wonderful talk. As I mentioned, my husband has dementia and things have been very difficult lately, but after listening to you I decided to start my husband's memory book. I talked to him and he thought it was a great idea. We started yesterday and I had him laughing which he has not done for a long time. It was lovely to see him remembering his street when he was a boy.
Thank you so much for giving us this project, which will be so important in the future for him."
I've been giving lots of life story Zoom talks during lockdown, which I've really enjoyed. It's been great to meet so many people and to hear their memories. I ask the participants to bring along a photo of themselves as a child and an object from their homes that has a tale to tell. I hear so many fascinating stories! I explore why it's so important to get family memories written down and help participants get started, whether it's writing their own memories or capturing the memories of someone they love, particularly if they are older or living with the early stages of dementia.
Getting family memories written down is such a worthwhile and important thing to do. This year has taught us that it's impossible to know what's round the corner and family stories are priceless and so easily lost.
Would you like to capture the memories of someone you love? Have you always been meaning to write down your own life story? Future generations will thank you for it!
Why not join one of my workshops or talks? Please just get in touch I'd love to hear from you.
