One-on-one companionship and memoir coaching with our personal history writing project “My Life Story.”
Working from the textbook Elderwriters: Celebrate Your Life! by Sue Barocas, a volunteer will work one-on-one with an elder living in the Midcoast area to create an original, short book that captures his or her special moments and memories.
The personalized “My Life Story” legacy document created by the elder may include:
The personal history writing sessions are held once a week for a minimum of one hour at a convenient public location (local library, coffee shop, etc.) or in the common space of a senior living community. Upon completion (typically 8 weeks), an archival quality “My Life Story” booklet is printed, bound, and ready to be shared with family and friends.
