Researchers at the University of Florida are using Life Story Books to help people with early-stage memory loss preserve a sense of 'being themselves' and feel good about themselves even when they have memory difficulties


Your participation will help others: we want to know the best way to create digital Life Story Books that help seniors with memory problems.
