Recording the life stories of the elderly
Project URL: www.memorystoria.com/

MemoryStoria is a memoirs platform on which people record their life stories in cooperation with friends and family.
Stories can be recorded in text and photos for free, while the audio and video functionality will be available next year for paying subscribers.
The service is do-it-yourself with the help of their tools, but storytellers can also use the 'Ask a Favour' button to request help from others to edit, record or contribute content to a story.
George Iliev from MemoryStoria says: "These personal storytelling projects not only help to preserve the valuable emotional content of the lives of the elderly but also improve their quality of life by counteracting social isolation, teaching them new skills and bringing mental health benefits."
