StoryCorps, the National Oral History Project, Partners With San Francisco Institute on Aging
Date:1/5/2009

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- StoryCorps, a national initiative to document everyday history and the unique stories of Americans, will visit Institute on Aging's Alzheimer's Day Care Resource Center on JANUARY 13, 2009 to celebrate the stories of the center's participants as part of its Memory Loss Initiative. StoryCorps is a national independent nonprofit project in partnership with NPR and the American Folklife Center (AFC) at the Library of Congress.

StoryCorps was created by award-winning documentary producer and MacArthur "Genius" Grant recipient Dave Isay. This unprecedented project has traveled to every corner of America, instructing and inspiring individuals to record their stories in sound. StoryCorps is the largest multi-year oral history project ever undertaken. Since its launch in October 2003, StoryCorps' has collected over 23,000 stories in all. In 2006, StoryCorps launched the Memory Loss Initiative to support and encourage people with memory loss to share their stories.

"Looking a loved one in the eyes and asking about his or her life is one of the greatest gifts we can give one another," says Dave Isay. "The simple act of listening tells them how much they matter, and documenting that conversation for posterity tells them that they won't be forgotten."

Participants in the Alzheimer's Day Care Resource Center will have an opportunity to record their personal stories with the help of their families or caregivers.

"Our program participants come from such diverse backgrounds and have truly amazing stories. We see the power of those stories on a daily basis," says Tracy Chesna McCloud, Program Director for the Alzheimer's Day Care. "Giving families and their loved ones this chance to reconnect over these stories and have them recorded is something we are looking forward to offering."

StoryCorps interviews are conducted between two people w
