I think the best way to describe to you how the Stories for Seniors began is to share a series of five postings from Craigs List. Quite accidentally, I “fell into this” and have visited 8 Nursing and Rehabilitation Centers and VA Medical Centers within the past 3 weeks. The residents have all loved it. I guess you are never too old to enjoy a good story! The Seniors get involved because I bring along a lot of “props” that make each story come alive. I have a wedding gown that begins a discussion about their wedding, a pot to talk about their favorite recipe to cook, a plaid suitcase leads to sharing about a favorite vacation, and a teapot to talk about the time they spent with friends.
