Let’s Talk Story Club

Our mission is to help seniors combat loneliness, and reduce cognitive decline and memory loss. We do this by pairing seniors with volunteers who preserve their memories in life story books. Let’s talk story!

“Sharing one’s life story stimulates memories and cognition, reducing depression and loneliness. I highly recommend this activity to provide older adults with a sense of fulfillment and comfort as they reflect upon their lives and accomplishments.”
