Program Description

The "Storycorps Memory Loss Initiative" Program is a memory program that assists in memory recall and mind fitness by supplying tools such as a team of specialists in memory loss, Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia, along with recording equipment free of charge.

A unique feature of the "Storycorps Memory Loss Initiative" Program is that recorded tapes are then sent to the Library of Congress for public access.

In addition to the "Memory Loss Initiative," StoryCorps provides an opportunity for all Americans to recall, record, share, and preserve stories.

A unique toolkit called "Commemorate" is designed to help memory loss care facilities record, share, and preserve the stories of clients living with memory loss.

The "Commemorate Toolkit" offers memory loss care facilities across the country a new individualized reminiscence program they can add to their existing roster of person-centered care activities. Offering Commemorate interviews to people living with memory loss can enhance bonds between clients, caregivers, and staff and reduce common feelings of isolation and low self-esteem.
These interviews also offer clients and their families the opportunity to preserve the legacy of individuals living with memory loss.

The "Storycorps Memory Loss Initiative" is a unique memory program.

A handful of stories from Storycorps are selected for animation such as the one below, "Danny and Annie."
