Celeste Davidson and Adam Simon from Join Our Story visit with Mark Alyn on Late Night Health to talk about Storytelling for Seniors and to share with listeners an exciting way of learning new skills and remembering the past as the future unfolds.
As American ages, more and more people will be alone. Couples will split up, a spouse or live in campaign will pass. Loneliness is one of the most frightening issues facing Americans today.
By nature, most people like to be around other people. Yet after years of a relationship dissolving, it’s sometimes difficult for people to get back into relating with new people. That’s where Join Our Story comes in.
In the 21st Century, technology has allowed people of all ages to engage with each other. From smart phones to computers, we can talk, visit, watch and write others with common interests from all over the world. The magic link between people are the stories that make up their lives and connect them.
Join Our Story is for seniors who want to embrace the new technology and come out of their share. Studies clearly indicate that single seniors just sit! Sure, they watch TV, read and do their daily chores, but they don’t really participate in life. They allow life to pass them by. Join Our Story is changing this.
Instead of watching game shows, Join Our Story teaches seniors how to use new tech to share the stories of their lives. With on-line courses designed to help people interact, share and write, Join Our Story is about learning how to live – again.
Storytelling is part of almost everyone. Stories about grandkids, growing up in other countries, and even about sex, people love to read about life adventures of others.
Visiting with Mark Alyn on Late Night Health, Join Our Story co-founders Celeste Davidson and Adam Simon, share ideas on how seniors (and their families) can get involved with this new concept of living (and giving). Celeste and Adam explain why it’s important for those over 60, living alone, to get involved with the Join Our Story family. And Join Our Story is not only for singles, couples are welcome as well.
