Share a Favorite Memory

Take a stroll down memory lane with an older adult.

Maybe you both served in the armed forces – or grew up with the same family dynamic. Sharing fond memories often uncovers similarities that you never knew you had. And one of the best things about engaging in these talks with an older adult, is that you almost always learn something new – and they almost always enjoy telling their story. Reach out to a senior in your life and let them know their stories matter, and you want to hear them!

Did you know...
Roughly 40% of older adults have some degree of cognitive impairment. Being social -- whether playing a game, chatting or sharing your favorite memory -- can help strengthen brain functionality and boost someone's (and your own) mental health.
