Artifcts Announces Collaboration with Insight Memory Care Center

Artifcts is pleased to announce its expansion into the memory care community, where the joys of our daily lives represented by the objects we keep can empower everyone to capture their story. Artifcts' collaboration with Virginia-based Insight Memory Care Center (IMCC) will help to bring the power of story-sharing to the IMCC community.

"Insight Memory Care Center is excited to collaborate with Artifcts to bring their innovative, engaging and meaningful service to IMCC families with early stage dementia," said Lindsey Vajpeyi, Early State Programs Director. "IMCC values care, connection, and creativity, and Artifcts is a platform that strives for the same. Artifcting provides an opportunity to spend quality time with friends, family, and care partners to remember, document and share stories in a safe and supportive environment."

Artifcts does away with the need for story prompts and tedious inventories of a life lived. Instead those tangible mementos, photos, and videos you keep provide the source of inspiration. Artifcting is an easy and fun way to remember the moments of life behind those objects and preserve your personal history and legacy. Keep your Artifcts collection private or share it to connect with your community and your loved ones – you decide!

IMCC cares for a diversity of memory impairments and offers a variety of innovative programs to support individuals with Alzheimer’s disease. IMCC also provides support, education, programming and resources to families, caregivers, and the community. By offering person-centered and holistic care, IMCC creates opportunity and a community for those affected by memory impairments to live their highest quality of life.

DEMENTIA RESOURCES

During the course of our work at Artifcts, we've come across a pleathora of resources related to those affected by dementia. Starting local is imperative to social connection and availability with the every expanding digital universe, so many more options are now at our fingertips. Many you likely know, including the Alzheimer's Association, UsAgainstAlzheimer's, and AARP. There are two additional resources that have learned about more recently that we wanted to flag for those just starting this journey or on the lookout for new resources:

    • Alzheimer's Speaks. Artifcts recently joined their free directory called the Dementia Map. We encourage you to explore the map to find the right resources for you and your loved ones.
    • Great Age Reboot. One of the standout features is that the Reboot Your Age app includes research-supported programming, including the quintessential "games" associated with brain health. Artifcts has no affiliation with this company.

Artifcts Now a Preferred Provider of AgeWise Colorado

AgeWise Colorado is a non-profit created with older adults, their loved ones, and current and future caregivers in mind, helping them to find the products and services to help older adults stay in their homes and Age Well ... Age Wisely. "AgeWise Colorado is exactly what we need more of in this world. Essential to life-fulfilling services, vetted, and in one place to benefit the local community. We're honored to be a small part of their work." said Artifcts Co-founder Ellen Goodwin.

Artifcts is an agile provider that not only cherishes the value of our personal memories and histories but wants to ensure that's what we carry with us in life, and not the burden of 'stuff.' Artifcts is a fun and powerful website and app that helps you connect the dots of a memory to create a personal collection that you can privately or publicly share. Combine a photo with audio or video to share Mom's story about her and your Dad's first home, remember the details behind all those medals, flags, and uniforms of Dad's service in the Korean war, capture that family recipe for all time, with a video tip from Grandma on that key step.

"We saw in Artifcts a platform that puts people first. Whether in-home care providers spend time Artifcting with your loved one, or together you use Artifcts for estate and end-of-life planning, it's the experience that keeps on giving. It's time well spent. You can enjoy those memories together now and simplify what can be a difficult process at end of life, too," said Bob Brocker, Founder and Board President of AgeWise Colorado.

Artifcts Joins NAPO as a Business Partner

Enabling the Decluttering Movement 

At Artifcts, we know that not all "stuff" has meaning. Some things enter our lives, get shelved, boxed, stashed. Some things just help us make a cozy, livable, or "us" home. And stuff accumulates. But the rest, the rest has meaning, and objects cannot speak for us. Just ask these garage tools! Our team is focused on making it simple and fun to capture the meaning behind the objects of our lives. By doing that, we can help reduce the emotional burden, energy drain, and general chaos that physical objects around us can impose. 

Last month we published an interview on ARTIcles with a home organization professional that clearly struck a chord. We heard a resounding, "Been there!" message and the click as one of the superpowers of Artifcts fell into place: Organize and declutter without guilt. 

We are joining forces with the National Association of Productivity and Organizing (NAPO) Professionals as well as the local NAPO-Austin, Texas chapter, to help people through the organization process when you will need to know why you are keeping something (and then "organize that") or send it on to its next home. Each of those objects is a potential Artifct with a story, history, or meaning to capture whether you're holding onto it or not. 

We invite you to consider how Artifcts can help organize, declutter, and downsize so that you hold onto memories, not just objects.

Artifcts Joins NEDA as a Corporate Partner

Artifcts, Inc. is pleased to announce its corporate partnership with NEDA (National End-of-Life Doula Alliance). NEDA’s mission is to inspire positive, creative change in American death practices by creating high standards, ethical and practical guidelines, and rich networking opportunities for all End-of-Life Doulas, resulting in meaningful experiences for the dying, their caregivers, and the agencies involved.  

Artifcts’ mission to help people capture, preserve, and share the meaning (and stories) behind the objects of their lives aligns with NEDA’s desire to create a meaningful experience for the dying and their families. Through Artifcts, families can connect and reminisce over their happy memories, histories, and legacies. Families can also utilize the Artifcts platform to export a copy of their most cherished Artifcts to their estate plan or will, enabling the owner to pass down stories in addition to "things." 

Artifcts looks forward to working with NEDA to help inspire positive, creative change towards end of life customs and practices.
