Memory Boxes help loved ones transition to assisted living
Moving into a nursing home can be a very scary thing. You are no longer in charge of all your household duties. The walls are different and confusing. There are people coming in and out of your room at all hours, most of which you just met. What you really hope for is something familiar.
When transitioning from a home full of belongings and memories into a room that does not feel like home we want something to hold onto, something to remind us we are still us. A memory box with some of those precious memories to display not only is a conversation piece to those that visit. Its a window into the lives of those who fill it. In sharing experiences with those around us we are able to become more comfortable in our surroundings because we've taken the moment to have a conversation and grow new relationships.
