ReStory – Rewrite your story is an Erasmus+ project that runs from September 2020 to August 2022.

The purpose of ReStory is to arm the care-givers with skills that will help elderly people regain an active role in the society. During piloting, 140 care-givers will take part in the program and improve their skills. After the training based on the project’s curriculum, care-givers will have the opportunity to use a handy tool that will help them assist their beneficiaries (end users of the project), the seniors, to create their own stories and recreate them by working together through the techniques of artistic means.
Elderly people will feel themselves useful for the society, will enhance their emotional and social skills and therefore will have the opportunity to overcome the barrier of age and the difficulty of feeling unnecessary and of handling responsibilities. These will lead the elderly people to improve their self-esteem, sense of community and feeling of active citizenship.
