      Yes, I have been putting photos into small collections and showing them periodically as a sort of Life Story chat, and monitoring whether she remembers them each time. You can put answers on a calendar to get a view of how recall is progressing. I’ve started using RemindMecare’s My Story. I wish they had a report on this type of documentation of recall.

      The thing about photos is that they can be disturbing also. So you need to write on the back of the photo the impact it had. That’s what we did. We kept notes and found images that were the most powerful

      I’ve  been working with my granddad to build a memory resource using family content. It has proved very powerful. I wonder if anyone knows any websites where we could post this content to share it with the world, other than Facebook and Pinerest?
