A free listening tool to help you reach out to older adults and share their life stories.
Inspired by our founder's friendship with her grandmother, The Best Day of My Life So Far is dedicated to fighting older adult isolation and promoting intergenerational engagement through storytelling. Use this handy form anytime, anywhere, to jot down a story told to you by an older adult.

A few tips:
- Use 1 form per story. Repeat often to enrich your relationships.
- Haven't reached out to an older adult before? No worries! Learn basic concepts at http://bit.ly/2wy9RCu.
- It is important to request the storyteller's permission to share their story. By submitting this form, you are confirming that you have been granted permission, and are giving Best Day permission to share the story and your reflections publicly.
