Memories II, Learn Your Family History.
Ask your senior what they remember about these things:
A personal family history–continue from yesterday. http://Memories are your Heritage
What movies do they remember?
Use these photos as a springboard for discussion. My mom and dad saw the movie Laura on one of their first dates. So romantic, they named me after the movie. My dad gets sentimental when he hears the song. I love it that my mom and dad still hold hands almost every day. It’s such a great example for us that love isn’t about youth, how you look, or convenience. It’s lifelong commitment, despite age or infirmity and continues even when you’re loved one’s body and mind fails.
We are enjoying our extended family visiting this weekend. I hope we all get to share stories and memories this holiday. Here are some excellent tips on how to encourage seniors to share and keep your precious family stories.
