Engage the mind and spirit of an elderly family member or friend by assisting them in bringing some fond past memory to life! Whether creating a poster, reviving a photo album or even creating a recipe book with past favorite recipes. This project will bring your seniors past to life and be a lasting family memento!

There are countless ways to create a legacy project. The approach you choose will depend on factors like the talents and interests of senior or elderly involved in the project, their family history and culture, and their health. Make it a multigenerational effort by recruiting children and grandchildren to participate. The final results may be large or modest, depending on everyone’s time and inclinations, and the materials can range from photos and glue sticks to fabric and thread to a digital medium. Involve your senior or elderly in creating a poster or a memory book that documents the life passages of those in your care, and keep it up to date with recent photos of grandchildren, graduation parties, and trips. They may enjoy going through the photos with you and helping you write captions.
