Seminar Title: The Power of Story to Connect and Reduce Loneliness

Authentic stories of people’s lives are powerful. Details of family relationships, childhood memories, military service, work experiences, love and marriage, historical events, and just “everyday” life deserve to be captured and known. But people are complicated and capturing their unique stories requires great care. The seminar will explore how reminiscing and engaging in storytelling supports quality of life and person-centered care. Research on the negative health impact of loneliness will be discussed plus the importance of encouraging feelings of purpose and meaning for overall wellbeing. What if we were engaged more? What if there were classes and discussions that built closeness and new friendships? What if people can connect more online or by phone to share feelings and deep experiences that matter? This session will share the importance of engagement and knowing unique, incredible people while we have the chance---in health care settings and with seniors’ living at home.
