Wednesday Workshop – Milestone Memories: A Look at Your Milestones
Learning how to walk. Your first day of school. Getting a driver’s license. Landing your first job. Graduating high school. Moving out. Graduating college. Getting married and having children are all common milestones that most people achieve in their lifetime.
Milestones are important for a purposeful life going beyond just an existence. They help map the future, they calibrate the life journey and give specific points to pause and celebrate. They are indeed great moments worthy of the journey. They give momentum and fuel to propel you forward.
Pause a moment from your busy life and look ten years back, highlighting the milestones already achieved. Don’t you wish you could re-live those achievements. How would you feel watching a movie of your life’s highlights, starring YOU?
Well, with help from our friends at ElderCare at Home, that is now possible. The Milestone Memories program helps to capture these moments and celebrate the wonderful life of you, your family and/or your loved one with Alzheimer’s disease.
Every family has stories to tell and memories to preserve and that’s why each month, members of our Milestone Memories™ program have the opportunity to participate in a fun, theme-based, and cognitively stimulating activity, right in their own home! On your loved ones birthday, we will help celebrate and preserve the memories of the day with cake, balloons, flowers and a special card.
On their anniversary, we will commemorate their love and celebrate their marriage by walking through their relationship milestones. We will professionally record their story and history together, using pictures, memorabilia and other special effects. We will provide it all to you in DVD format, for you and your family to enjoy for generations to come!
We invite you to become a member of the Milestone Memories program! You can do so by calling us at (561) 588-4545 or by going online at www.ElderCareatHome.org. Thank you for watching today’s Wednesday Workshop and we’ll see you again next week!
