Remarkable Lives
a social network to celebrate the life stories of older people
Remarkable Lives is tackling challenges affecting our ageing population: loneliness and isolation, compounded by negative perceptions of later life, against the backdrop of fragmented families, and reduced connectivity between the generations. A social media app that's dedicated to people in later life, Remarkable Lives’ purpose is to help people tell their life story, saving their memories on a timeline with photos and stories. What sets Remarkable Lives apart is that posts can be back-dated to chronicle people's lives from the beginning. Bringing families and friends closer together through private sharing, everyone can contribute their own memories and its designed deliberately to encourage better intergenerational communication, saving memories both for now and future generations. Remarkable Lives also enhances care. The life story content, together with a tool to provide up to date information about needs and preferences, can be made available to healthcare providers.
