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.
How do I create a memory bank?
There are 3 ways to get started:
D-I-Y with Audivi’s app. It’s simple: just record a memory & upload a photo. Save as many or as few memories as you like.
Contract with Audivi to capture the memories. We conduct the interview and create individual, short vignettes from the conversation. You add the photos later. Email email@example.com to make an appointment
Record a full conversation on your phone and send the recording to us. We will edit out the extraneous content & questions and upload the curated vignettes to the memory bank. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions.
Delete or add memories to a bank at any time.
Set memory banks to public or private.
Invite other Audivi users to contribute to a bank.
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. I worry that someday they will be gone – 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.
These would have been the sole drivers for the business until something unexpected happened: I played the memory profile for my mother (who has short-term memory loss) and, much to my surprise, experiencing the memories gave her great joy. It connected her to her past & to herself, and enabled 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!
