Celebrating a special moment or a special person? Capture their story with this Life Story Book DIY kit and cherish the memories dear to you.
The benefits of creating and using Life Story books are well documented. It can be a therapeutic project, creatively rewarding and a perfect way to show someone how important they are to you. Helping friends or family capture their story makes for a wonderful celebration of a milestone birthday or anniversary and is an incredibly thoughtful DIY gift.
It can also help families connect - preserving precious family history and creating a legacy for generations to come.
Life Story books are also an invaluable part of person-centred care. If you can share your past with others, it can help them understand you in the present. These books are therefore a particularly useful resource and tool for people with dementia.
This A5 guide includes an easy to follow 10 point plan, top tips, and best practice guidelines. There are also three different templates so that families can choose between a weekend project or a longer more in-depth experience.
There is also an interactive element to the guide - access to an online questionnaire so that you can personalise your experience.
This unique Life Story DIY kit offers the opportunity for:
  • A therapeutic and creative project that promotes wellbeing
  • A way to connect families and preserve family history for generations to come
  • Celebrating milestone birthdays or anniversaries
  • Creating an invaluable tool for person-centred care: an easy way to share someone's past, so that others can understand their present
  • Investing in a resource to bank precious memories for when memories fade or there's a dementia diagnosis.
