Storytelling for Seniors

John LoweUncategorizedLeave a Comment

Recently I did some research for an article on the benefits of storytelling for senior citizens, and I was surprised at how great an impact telling stories can have on the quality of life for seniors. According to Assisted Living Today, the benefits of storytelling for seniors includes improved memory, relief from boredom, decreased feelings of depression, improved self-esteem and improved quality of life.  Our seniors have a lifetime of experience, history and stories to share.  We owe it to them to provide opportunities where they can share those stories, whether they live in a senior community or at home.
