Audivi memory banks
Capturing memories before they fade
Benefits of an Audivi memory bank
Memory banks offer support for individuals experiencing memory loss – just as hearing aids and eye glasses do for hearing & vision loss.
Playing memory banks offer a fun diversion that can provide caregivers respite.
Memory banks can offset the disorientation, confusion, anxiety & depression that is often associated with memory loss by preserving a permanent touchstone to the past.
Children are more resilient and better able to moderate the effects of stress in their own lives when they know more about their family’s history.
The physiological effect of hearing a voice of someone you love is similar to what you’d experience if you actually touched or hugged them.
Your voice & memories may be among the most cherished items you pass down to your kids and grandkids.

There are 3 ways to create an Audivi memory bank:
- D-I-Y with Audivi's app (one-time purchase fee) $9.99
Download the app + record a memory + upload a photo = on-line memory bank. Unlimited memory storage.
- Audivi curates the memories $75
Turn on a recorder; ask some questions; record the answers; send Audivi the recording. Audivi edits the recording (to delete questions & extraneous content) and uploads the curated vignettes to a memory bank. Add photos and more memories over time.
- Audivi conducts the interview $250
Choose questions or topics ahead of time and let Audivi conduct a 30-minute in-person or zoom-based interview with your loved one. Audivi edits the conversation into individual vignettes and uploads them to a memory bank. Add photos and more memories over time.
What our clients are saying:
There were 3 things that inspired me to create Audivi:
- First of all, my mother has loads of great stories from across her lifetime. We hear many of them again and again – and can cite some of them verbatim – but I know that won’t always be the case. As her memory fades, so will the stories. Someday, they will be forgotten – for her and for us.
- In addition, I saw my wedding video and was struck by my father’s voice. I realized it was the only place that we had a recording of him speaking. Even though we could hardly see him in the film, it didn’t matter. Hearing his voice transported me back to him.
- Finally, I wondered how best to take care of my mother’s memorabilia: a letter from her father when she was young, a 1947 ticket for passage to Europe, old portraits of her great-great grandparents, and so much more. These items, tucked away in my mother’s desk drawer, are likely to be lost over time and are certainly under-appreciated even now.
And so I decided to put them all together: my mother’s voice telling her stories combined with the beautiful old photos. A great listening experience that would keep us connected to her and her past.
Then, something unexpected happened. I played the memories for my mother who has short-term memory loss and saw that experiencing the memories gave her great joy. It enabled her to revisit and re-experience her favorite memories again and again. In an increasingly confusing day-to-day reality, her memories help her feel grounded and connected. Keeping memories accessible to those losing their memories seemed so obvious.
Audivi has now created a memory banking app to make it easy and affordable for everyone to capture memories and keep that critical lifeline to the past alive. We hope you will join us in creating memory banks for all!
