Who knows about your life experiences and enjoyments, childhood experiences, travel adventures, your first car, first love, or other meaningful moments? Coordinator of the City of Unley’s Community Visitors Program Lexie Raven says that once the deterioration of cognitive abilities has begun, it is too late to remember these things. “I am saddened by the number of people who reach aged care without any evidence of their social history. We want to provide the best and most effective socialisation for residents and the more we know about the person we are caring for, the better support we can provide.” Lexie wants to encourage people to write down their history and share stories with family and friends. “Even if it is in dot points, this information will assist you enormously when you need it most - when you are not able to remember,” she says. The City of Unley has been running the Community Visitors Scheme which benefits and supports older people since 1991.
