Unlock the power of emotional memory
You think you know somebody… until you’ve had the opportunity to play LifeTimes. LifeTimes’ unique, creative memory prompts invite stories you’ve probably never heard before. For family members young and old, there is always a story to be told.
Seniors discover and enjoy personal histories through reminiscence and story telling while playing Lifetimes. Friendships blossom and a sense of community is created.
For caregivers, Lifetimes provides a simple and stimulating conversation tool for easily getting to know someone. Lifetimes’ questions prompt stories from days gone by – for small groups, large groups, or individual play.
LifeTimes is fun! Most people who play LifeTimes can’t wait to play again as they retrieve and share memories of times gone by. Let LifeTimes’ evocative, vintage photos and heartwarming memory prompts take you on a journey back in time.
Our engaging questions and prompts are designed to access different aspects of memory. Call up a simple bit of trivia. Relive a personal moment. Invite storytelling and stimulate meaningful conversation.
Have you ever thought about writing a memoir or preserving family stories? Lifetimes provides prompts designed to help you unlock the richness of your own family history.
