Created to help ease the suffering of those battling Alzheimer’s/ Dementia and those at the end of life in Palliative or Hospice Care, it has quickly expanded. We now also create books for births, weddings, anniversaries, businesses and family histories. The idea behind this is that we all have stories to tell, parts of our lives that we wish to commemorate and share with the world.
In a world dominated by social media and Facebook, the birth, wedding, anniversary and various other books are great ways to document memories. There is something simply amazing about seeing your life in print, having something that you can pass down through the generations. If we look back through the decades, from the beginning of time, humans have used rock, paper, verbal stories, and books to record their lives, and we genuinely believe that it is an art that must be continued.
RetroScripts has since evolved into a business that provides strength, courage, and positivity through not only our Memory/ Legacy Books but also several different workshops. These workshops are facilitated in different places such as schools, corporate businesses, homes, hospice care, long term care homes, business networking meetings and many other venues. The workshops appeal to a wide variety of people looking to accomplish goals, get more in touch with themselves, and unleash the inner badass within.
The RetroScripts blog is a place where people can find a wide range of information from coping techniques, excerpts from healthcare providers, companies that offer support in Ontario, to real life musings, thoughts and words of encouragement.
As time passes, RetroScripts continues to develop and expand to meet the needs of ALL in our community. Strength, support, and creativity is something that we believe is a necessity to life, one in which we are happy to provide.
