Description: 

In 2011-2012, volunteers wrote down the life stories of the elders living in nursing homes, to record their memories. To have someone listen to their stories, older persons gained perspectives in their lives and a sense of inner peace. Young(er) volunteers, in turn, gained deeper understanding and appreciation of what it is to age.
