Nothing does the heart better than sharing things of the past. When engaging virtually with an older adult, ask them what items around the house they are most proud of and why. Trying on bracelets with one lovely woman brought up warm memories she was happy to share after all these years. Modeling each piece of jewelry, she captured special times in her life reminiscent of who she was, what she experienced ,and the people she loved. Sharing stories from her history brought self-esteem and the ability to express her intimate thoughts and emotions. Ask your activity partner if you can share something special from your house to bring two-way enthusiasm to the activity session. Cherished memories are happy memories, especially when you share them with another person!
