A Warm Life Story Club Welcome

“It became a family here!”

– Al Guariglia, age 86

Launched at the end of May 2021, Life Story Club @ Home is a virtual program that provides social support for older adults through the sharing of life stories. Life Story Club (LSC) organizes older adults into small cohorts of six to 12 participants who meet together each week with an LSC facilitator. Using a range of prompts, the facilitators invite people to exchange their life stories, sparking connections between participants which deepen over time.

The audio excerpt above is typical of the warm welcomes shared at the beginning of these club meetings. What was initially presented as an eight-week series has evolved into an ongoing club that is still coming together each week to meet over a year later.
