As mentioned on the HOME page, MY FOREVER PICTURE has the ability to reveal personality and lifestyle traits about the person whose picture appears in the center. But if you put your mind to it, you could probably come up with many other uses for this great service. Here are three that comes to mind:
Use it to show Senior Adults that they are important
In all likelihood, your Father, Mother, and Grandparents already know that you love and care for them. Hopefully, you visit them on a regular basis, and tell them how much they mean to you.
But even though they know you love them, they can still feel lonely, useless, and unneeded. One of the chief reasons Seniors feel this way is because they think you have lost interest in them, and that they are no longer a productive member of the family.
Obviously, the best way to deal with this situation is to show more interest in their life. A MY FOREVER PICTURE is a great way to show that you are genuinely interested in your Senior Adults.
Use it to help Alzheimer's and Dementia patients
People who in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease or Dementia are still in a position to remember many of the more everyday details of their life, such as how many jobs they have held, or the name of their favorite movie. If you plan to help them remember and document the everyday details about their life, you better not wait too long.
Both Alzheimer's and Dementia can be fast moving diseases that can cause people to forget the details of their life. You can use a MY FOREVER PICTURE to record those details, and then use the Character Profile to help them remember them later.
Use it to reconnect with Church Members who can't attend
Church members who have stopped coming are easy to forget because we don't see them every week. We are so busy with our own worship experience, that we frequently forget about those members who no longer attend on a regular basis. Obviously, we need to take the time to visit these folks, to let them know that we have not forgotten about them.
An excellent project would be to ask each regular member of the church to sponsor a shut-in, and then assign that shut-in to one of the youth members or deacon. Then, the youth member or deacon would go to the shut-in's house and let them know that they have not been forgotten. Creating a MY FOREVER PICTURE is a way to stay in touch with Senior members who no longer attend on a regular basis.
