You'll have a chance to edit and change your MemoryWell to your exact specifications. You can also choose to keep it completely private or make it public and share with your family and friends.
Our new MemoryWell Plus option gives you easy-to-use features so that the story is not the end of the conversation, but just the beginning.
"We always think we will get around to putting that photo album or scrapbook together and it rarely gets done. Memory Well has given me and my family a venue to honor my dad and share his story. Thank you SO much!!”
MemoryWell breaks ground with its “use of online media, accessible by cell phone, tablet or computer, and the idea of engaging journalists to work with families on those stories.”
“MemoryWell is one of the very few important things I can do to improve my sister Mary's care. St. Paul's caregivers learned: that she was a doer, an organizer and very accomplished. All the qualities/behaviors that had made her life so successful were still within her. Understanding that is everything.”
"I show the MemoryWell to Chris, and she gets a kick out of it. She loves looking through the photos and seeing the stories."
