Valuing a Memory
Do you know someone who has challenges with memory?
This story is about using a particular technology to help those with a certain kind of memory loss.
To get to this point, Anne-Christine Hertz, the person who started BikeAround, had to imagine a connection between Street View and prompting important memories for people fighting Alzheimer’s disease.
What might you do to help tell the stories of places in your community to help the elderly reconnect to cherished memories?
Can you teach yourself to look for unusual connections like Hertz did? Can you talk with friends about what could be, rather than simply what is?
Can you think of a memory that you hope you will never lose, because it’s worth more to you than almost anything else?
Whatever memories you cherish, be grateful you have them.
