Judy’s Video Tip 3: Sharing Stories
Sharing stories is a great way to connect to a senior. You would be surprised at how small the world can be. You may share a lot of similarities.
Or maybe you will learn something new.
How do you share stories with someone who can’t remember their story? They can’t remember their job, what they did growing up, or old family members.
The thing is, the story they tell doesn’t have to be right. It’s more about connecting. You can use some points in history to see if they recognized what they are talking about. See if something clicks.
The Reagan (Judy’s granddaughter) spotlight of the video is when Judy starts to blow bubbles. She remembers getting bubbles for her own kids and how much joy it brought them.
