Senior Memoir-writing Classes in April
Life Stories Nevada, a memoir-writing class, will be offered each Monday beginning April 8 at Temple Beth Sholom (10700 Havenwood Lane, LV 89135) from 10 to 11:30 a.m.
Life Stories Nevada is a program of Clark County Cooperative Extension that helps older adults record their life stories for themselves and future generations.
In the four weekly classes, instructors aid would-be memoirists sort through their memories and organize how they want to tell their story.
Research has illustrated the importance of personal narratives to improve memory and promote self-esteem, which can lead to extended independence and more successful aging. The program aims to increase residents’ well-being by validating their life stories through both the process of writing them down and sharing them in a supportive setting.
