App Store Description

Sometimes all you need for a great conversation is a place to start.

LifeTimesTalk is an entertaining and rewarding conversation tool designed to encourage reminiscence with:
• older adults and their caregivers
• baby-boomers and their aging parents
• multi-generational family groups
• spouses, siblings, and friends

Friendships blossom, relationships deepen, and social connectivity grows.

Based on the popular, original boxed version, Lifetimes The Game Of Reminiscence, LifeTimesTalk’s evocative writing and vintage design unlocks the power of emotional memory to spark non-competitive engagement with your loved ones. LifeTimesTalk’s conversation cards are a complete, simple to use experience adaptable for either residential or family use.

Join the conversation!

"I can attest to the effectiveness of this game. My residents absolutely love the pictures – as they say, the pictures are worth a thousand words and these photos and prompts certainly do promote dialogue.”
Donna Simpson – Sunrise Senior Living, Aurora

Browse the index of topics featuring vintage photos and written prompts to spark a conversation. Tap to choose a card, swipe right or left to see the previous or next card, enjoy the photo, then tap the bottom corner to flip the card for questions designed to explore four deepening aspects of memory:
• Call Up – simple fact recall
• Think Back – personal recollection
• Paint The Scene – in-depth reminiscence and storytelling
• Let’s Talk – open-ended discussion

• Evoke rich reminiscence through heartwarming conversation prompts
• Stimulate personal memories with enchanting vintage photos
• Explore deepening aspects of memory : simple fact recall, personal recollection, reminiscence/storytelling and discussion
• Select topics to visit from categories: Family Life, Food & Recipes, Style, Love & Romance and Leisure Time
• Search topics by category, by player, or by scrolling the entire index
• Use the random button to get a surprise

LifeTimesTalk uses reminiscence and life review to encourage and deepen social interaction, promote a sense of comfort, and enhance identity and self-esteem.
For caregivers, it’s an excellent tool for getting to know elderly clients and for helping to relieve anxieties in a care environment. Whether through fifteen minutes or a whole afternoon of reminiscing, LifeTimesTalk prompts storytelling which can help build comfortable relationships.

LifeTimes the Game of Reminiscence was created by retired educators Carol McPhee and Mary Jane McPhee in the fall of 2010. LifeTimesTalk has been adapted from the original boxed game currently in use across North America in seniors facilities and community day programs including Alzheimer Societies. It’s a popular formula for creating great conversations among older adults.
