Story Harvesters

Downsizing from the family home or sorting through years of memories when packing can be difficult and challenging. Moving home doesn't mean you have to leave your memories behind. At the Yorkshire Move Manager we are proud to work with Story Harvesters to help you deal emotionally with your later life move. We have developed a special DVD and booklet package for our clients - just ask for more information.

Story Harvesters helps ordinary people to tell their often extraordinary stories. They write your life story for you - one element or a full memoir. Rachel will inspire you to mine your memory and write your own memoirs. Story Harvesters also use the power of stories and reminiscence to help people with dementia and in palliative care to feel better.
