Connecting people through memories.

Audivi portraits

Capture a legacy

Portraits showcase family stories, memorabilia, & words of wisdom for generations to come.  Don’t let old family photos get lost in a drawer or old family lore get mangled over time. Make sure the photos, voice, emotions and words are preserved forever in an Audivi portrait. 

Preserve memory

Portraits function as a prosthesis, keeping the memories accessible to individuals experiencing memory loss. Watching a portrait enables a person to re-experience the emotions and joy of that time, and provides a comforting touchstone to their past. 

Celebrate an individual

Portraits capture memories from family & friends about a loved one to honor their life, work, marriage, etc. These portraits are a wonderful gift and can be particularly precious for family/friends who live far from a loved one.

Audivi portraits combine short, audio vignettes & photos to showcase the stories of a lifetime in an immersive, captivating platform. Permanently hosted on Audivi’s website, the portraits are always just a click away from anyone, anywhere, at anytime – making them easy to explore & enjoy.

Connecting across generations

Kids & grandkids can connect with a loved one through the stories, words of wisdom and advice captured in a portrait.

Connecting with caregivers

Portraits help caregivers know more about an individual’s past, improving care and reducing burnout.

Connecting with loved ones

Portraits offer a powerful, immersive way to remember people & rekindle memories – even for those with memory loss.

Our Mission

Audivi’s mission is to capture a person’s memories and keep them accessible in a personalized, audio-visual digital ‘portrait’. For them. For their families. For their community. For their caregivers. For the next generation. Memories are captured in an audio-taped interview conducted by Audivi, the family, caregiver or community. Portraits are hosted on Audivi’s website, password-protected or not, making them permanently accessible to all.

What Our Clients Are Saying:

Why Get An Audivi Portrait?

To save a loved one's voice forever

Don’t underestimate the value of being able to listen to a loved one’s voice, again and again – forever! Research shows that when we hear the voice of someone we love, the physiological effect is similar to what we’d experience if we actually touched or hugged them. With an Audivi portrait, children can hear their parent’s voice forever; or parents can hear their children’s voice every day.

To preserve a trip down memory lane

Research shows that reminiscing about life has many beneficial outcomes: improving cognitive functioning, lowering rates of depressions & increasing a person’s sense of pride & accomplishment. An Audivi portrait offers this therapeutic trip down memory lane and a permanent place to revisit & re-experience the beneficial emotions of reminiscing day after day.

To build resilience in your kids & grandkids

Kids and grandkids will benefit from a family’s Audivi portrait. Researchers have found that children who know more about their families are more resilient and better able to moderate the effects of stress in their own lives. Let an Audivi portrait offer a permanent window into the ups and downs of your family’s trajectory.​

To create a 'meaningful' legacy

What is your legacy? Society has cultivated many resources & professionals to help individuals develop & transfer their financial legacy but, is that the most important part of a legacy? In one survey, 74% of respondents said that the most important thing to pass on to the next generation was “Values and life lessons”. An Audivi portrait can help with this by capturing your family’s words of wisdom, family stories & life lessons and keeping it accessible for generations to come.​

2. Select the images

Families/individuals choose images to pair with the memories. Images can be directly related to a memory, to the person telling the memory, or to the general time of the memory.

Our story

There were 3 things that inspired me to create Audivi (Latin, for “I heard”).

  1. 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. I worry that someday they will be gone – for her and for us.
  2. 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.
  3. 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. 

These would have been the sole drivers for the business until something unexpected happened: I played the portrait for my mother (who has short-term memory loss) and, much to my surprise, the portrait gave her great joy. It connected her to her past & to herself, and enables her to revisit and re-experience her favorite memories again and again. Legacy preservation may be considered a luxury item in today’s society, but memory preservation should be standard of care for individuals losing their memory. Audivi is striving to make this a reality.

 

Please join Audivi in capturing the memories, photos, & voice of your loved ones. For them. For you. For their caregivers. For the future. The memories are too valuable to lose!
