Memory Program

Memory Program

DATE:     Fall and Winter Sessions

In partnership with the University of British Columbia Okanagan, 3rd-year nursing students interview seniors and record their childhood memories onto a CD.  The CD becomes a keepsake memento for the seniors and their families.  This rewarding experience has proven to be as precious an experience for the nursing students as it is for the participants.  A celebration tea where stories are shared with great fondness is held at the end of the university term.

Memory Program participants share their stories with one another.
UBCO Students and Participants.
New friendships were formed through the process of hearing the senior’s stories.
Certificates of Completion were handed out to participants.
