Artifcts Now a Preferred Provider of AgeWise Colorado

November 21, 2022

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.

What's New at Artifcts
Hello! by NASMM Interviews the Founders of Artifcts

Mary Kay Buysse, Executive DirectorNational Association of Specialty & Senior Move Managers ® (NASMM), describes herself as a "fan girl" of Artifcts and with good reason. Technology is awesome when it's awesome, and the rest of the time it gets in our way, causes costly delays and errors, and spoils relationships. 

Our founders joined the Hello! interview series from NASMM for a deep-dive into Artifcts, a powerful digital instrument move managers will want to have front and center in their move management toolboxes. We offered a behind the scenes look into how Artifcts came to be as well as how move clients and their families benefit from Artifcts.

"Artifcts really has no direct competitor. What Artifcts is doing is unique because it's solving a problem we all have when we have to both deal with our stuff and want to preserve our stories and memories. And it's so easy and fun. It's remarkable!" said Mary Kay.

It was an engaging discussion, and we hope an informative one for all of you who are move managers or are in the position to hire someone to help with your next move. Artifcting can help you prepare, ease the emotional nature of the actual pack out day(s), and bring you joy for years to come. Listen in!

Artifcts Co-Founder Speaks at LongeviTech-TLV 2023

Last week was the first annual LongeviTech conference, led by the vision and mission-driven focus of Dr. Ira Sobel, the founder and Academic Director of Fintech for Longevity Academy.

LongeviTech-TLV 2023 united people from across the globe to create a unique space for open discussions and collaboration on the critical social, financial, health, and other lenses of longevity. If we are living longer and longer, how do we ensure the financial resilience, community support, and more to live quality, healthy lives by our own personal definitions?

Ellen Goodwin will speak at LongeviTech TLV 2023

Artifcts was honored to be invited to the stage in Tel Aviv alongside Laura Minquini, AthenaDAO; Ariel Yosefi, Herzog Fox & Neeman; Ron Gura, Empathy; and Polina Marenkova, Wallife. Our panel discussed the role of technology in longevity to preserve our legacies and both pre-plan and manage end of life with lesser emotional, legal, and financial toll than is the status quo.

"Artifcts is building something revolutionary, uniting in a single technology the power to unlock the stories and the financial value within the objects we all collect," said Dr. Sobel. "The platform promises a simple and powerful process, and I look forward to seeing how it will reshape aspects of insurance, estate planning, and story-sharing."

Over the next year, the conference participants will use the new relationships and momentum from last week's conference to forge new product crossovers, support intersecting research, capture the imagination of venture capital in longevity, and more. Stay tuned! This this only the beginning.

Artifcts' Founders Chat with How to Move Your Mom™ (and still be on speaking terms afterward)

If you've been following along here at Artifcts, you know that Artifcting to support downsizing and decluttering as well as building those intergenerational bonds are very much a part of our ethos. So you can imagine how at home the founders of Artifcts found themselves when chatting recently with Marty Stevens-Heebner on her podcast How to Move Your Mom(and still be on speaking terms afterward). Stevens-Heebner's podcast features top experts as well as older adults and family members who’ve lived through it all in the search for answers to the questions most people don’t know to ask and explore the possibilities, complexities, and potential of later life.

Our discussion was wide ranging! Here are a few themes that guided our discussion:

  • Where you can preserve and share the history behind your personal treasures for generations to come
  • Why documenting your most important possessions with younger family members can bridge the generational gap and create closer relationships
  • The surprising crossover between Artifcts and insurance. Make sure you have the proper coverage. File claims faster and easier.
  • How sharing these memories makes it much easier to let items go when you’re downsizing.
