About MemoryWell:
MemoryWell is a digital platform for elder storytelling. Our network of more than 500 professional writers works with families, senior living communities and home care providers to replace burdensome intake questionnaires with brief, intimate stories. MemoryWell's portraits build empathy and are poignant keepsakes for families.

MemoryWell grew out of our founder Jay Newton-Small's experience with her father, who was living with Alzheimer's disease. When Jay moved him into a senior living community, she was asked to fill out a long, generic questionnaire about his life. This made no sense to her: who would remember pages of hand-written data points for 150+ residents? Instead, as a longtime journalist she wrote his story for his caregivers and it transformed his life. The stories we create are available on our digital platform for families to share and add to, and they can also be printed out to make for easy offline use.

Our story has been featured in the Washington Post, CBS Evening News and on NPR, and we are telling new stories every single day. We put the person in person-centered care.
