This is a wonderful idea! It could very engaging for those close to the end of their lives & a lovely way for them to find back the memories/connections they may have lost. There's nothing my grandpa likes more than telling us stories about the good ol' days!
It made me think, it would be lovely to perhaps pair the elderly with aspiring writers to perhaps even help them write out memoirs/biographies which could help them re-connect not only with their care-givers & families but also old friends, associates, places? It would also leave behind a wonderful piece of history, their stories, even advice for their loved ones.

Hi Shane, when you say media channels & technologies do you have any specific ones in mind? Like TV, social media (facebook etc) am I missing any?

Hi Cei, Thank you, yes I would love to see the app evolve to be able to guide someone in the long run as well. I think a nudge function would be a great idea & should be done perhaps in a fun way to give the feeling of a friendly coach and motivator. Maybe the user can set notifications that remind you at specific moments during the day, but also ones that help you tally how many times in the week/month you actually did it?
