Once a memory is lost, you can’t get it back.
Save memories with Audivi.
Before it’s too late.
Safeguard your memories
We get hearing aids when we lose our hearing. We get glasses when our eyesight fails. Why not create a memory bank to protect our memories? It can keep us (or a loved one) connected to the past and offset the anxiety, disorientation, and confusion often associated with memory loss.
Keep memories accessible
A family's old photos, home videos and stories are priceless but often hard to keep track of. One person has the videos; a family historian knows the stories; and the photos are all over the place but nowhere to be found. Audivi’s app keeps it all in one place and a click away from everyone given access.
Enjoy family time together
Struggling to find an activity to bring the family together? Create a memory bank! Grandkids can take the lead. They can ask the questions, record the memories, AND learn the family history at the same time. Grandparents will benefit from time together and the interest & attention.
Bring memories to life - forever
Listening to a story captures our imagination and transports us through time - more than video or photo. Did you know that hearing the voice of a loved one produces the same physiological effect as being hugged by them? Record the memories and keep that bond forever.
Gift an Audivi memory bank
Gifting a memory bank can be as simple as giving your loved one the app or creating a memory bank with them.

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, the memories 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. I wanted to bring her old photos to life.
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, and would keep the memories accessible to all of us. Some families create a recording of their loved one or have an album but I wanted the information to be on-line and accessible to the entire family.
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 kept her grounded and connected.
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!
