"We always think we will get around to putting that photo album or scrapbook together and it rarely gets done. Memory Well has given me and my family a venue to honor my dad and share his story. Thank you SO much!!”

MemoryWell breaks ground with its “use of online media, accessible by cell phone, tablet or computer, and the idea of engaging journalists to work with families on those stories.”

Paul Kleyman’s Generations Beat Online


“MemoryWell is one of the very few important things I can do to improve my sister Mary's care. St. Paul's caregivers learned: that she was a doer, an organizer and very accomplished. All the qualities/behaviors that had made her life so successful were still within her. Understanding that is everything.”

Sharon Daly, family carer with family at St. Pauls House, Chicago
