Sound Memories Radio Empowering Each Other through Life Story
SPECIAL COVID 19 NOTICE: During Covid 19, Sound Memories Director, Cheryl Beer, has stopped her Life Story home visits & visits to Care Homes. However, she is still managing the radio website, so feel free to email her from our Contact page. She is also still managing our Friends of Sound Memories Facebook Page & working on a sustainability plan so that she can continue with her pioneering work. Stay safe, stay well & stay at home.
Sound Memories Radio is Award Winning, Not for Profit, Dementia Friendly Radio Station based in West Wales, founded by our Director, Life Story Artist, Cheryl Beer, who works closely with us our families, friends &/or carers, to devise memory resources by sharing our life stories.
Older people have vast experience & skills to bring to the table, so the project empowers them to help each other & continue to contribute to their community, in ways that make them happy. We also work with the younger generation to celebrate our lives, share our stories, build bridges, make friends, thus deconstructing stereotypes that might have been held about old age & dementia. We have over 500 listeners & more than 40 people have volunteered with us, as well as 260 friends on our facebook Friends of Sound Memories Group Page. You are welcome to join us, there.
We were working with volunteers to provide this film in Welsh Language when Covid 19 happened. Thank you for your patience.
Sound Memories Radio was launched at The National Botanic Garden of Wales by invitation from the Older People's Commissioner for Wales. Our Founder Cheryl Beer, won a GOLD Wales National Care Award for her pioneering work in Applied Story & Health, as well as an Outstanding Contribution from the University of South Wales.
