The Life Stories writer will help older adults who are impacted by poverty to share oral history - life stories. The interaction with the writer and the sharing of their life stories will alleviate social isolation, improve social and emotional well-being, and raise Life Story participantsí standard of living and sense of belonging to a community. The project will also empower the local community, build capacity, and provide sustainable solutions for the elderly population.
