As we grow older, it becomes inevitable that we accumulate a large amount of things from our past. You may have an elderly loved one who has loads of memories piled in boxes in the attic. Treasured items such as old photographs and little trinkets can be easily forgotten in a dusty trunk hidden away behind piles of clothing or holiday decorations. If you’ve ever taken the time to look through the personal items from your past, you probably relived some cherished moments with each item you held in your hands. The same holds true for your aging loved one as they sift through their boxes of memories except that they have probably collected a larger mass of items to view.

As we age, we accumulate various heirlooms, photos, and other items that remind us of our past and precious memories. The more memories we have, the more items we collect. And overtime, these items can become overwhelming. The point of these photos and heirlooms is to help us remember the good times, but these items are just sitting in a box in the basement or under the bed for many of us.
