Home Instead Senior Care Introduces Unique Memory Archival Opportunity for Elderly Clients

LifeCatching Service Helps Create Lasting Remembrances for Families

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - May 3, 2010) -  Home Instead Senior Care, a leading provider of in-home care for Northern California seniors, has extended its service options by offering clients an opportunity to capture their memories through LifeCatching™, an educational company that creates memory vaults for seniors.

Nearly 20 Home Instead Senior Care CAREGivers have completed the LifeCatching Specialist training which involves learning how to help the elderly relay their stories, understand the recording equipment and organize the project to share with the family.

"LifeCatching is a unique way for loved ones to preserve their legacy for generations to come," said Barbara Tabach, founder of LifeCatching. "LifeCatching Specialists follow a simple process that's adaptable to many environments in order to offer seniors a chance to communicate their remarkable history. It's important to chronicle their stories while they can."

LifeCatching benefits are currently being offered to Home Instead Senior Care clients as part of their ongoing services. When meeting with a senior, CAREGivers open the discussion with suggested LifeCatching questions while using a small video camera to capture their responses. The lasting results can then be transformed into a book, CD or DVD.

"A senior's story can have a major, lifelong impact on family members of every age," said Michelle Rogers, owner, Home Instead Senior Care Mountain View. "Our CAREGivers are trained to use the LifeCatching method to capture these precious memories."
