StorySparks Launches First-Ever Conversation Card Game for People with Alzheimer's and Dementia
An easy, interactive activity for those with dementia, Alzheimer's, caregivers, and loved ones

Birmingham, AL - March 13, 2024 - StorySparks™ offers the first conversation card game specifically for those with Alzheimer’s, dementia, and cognitive decline. Whether in-person or over the phone, it’s designed to foster meaningful conversations and to stimulate engagement; it’s easy and simple to use for everyone involved in caretaking including, children, paid caregivers, program leaders, and loved ones. Rooted in years of extensive research, the game draws upon peer-reviewed science from the National Institute of Health (NIH), National Institute of Aging (NIA), World Health Organization (WHO), and Center of Disease Control(CDC), among other reputable sources.

The game comes with everything needed for hours, days, weeks, months, and even years of entertainment. Each card helps guide StoryTellers through dusty memories they may have long forgotten. Instead of focusing on big, macro, cognitive questions, the expertly-written cards support unearthing meaningful details to relive positive memories. Moreover, the included StoryBook seamlessly incorporates powerful visual associations for even deeper engagement.

While StorySparks™ helps individuals, families, and caregivers unlock and capture cherished personal stories, it has a story all of its own. Founder, Julie Bucy, comes with 25 years of immense research and professional experiences, and the inspiration behind her creation is her grandmother Mimi’s struggle with vascular dementia. A self-described “ball of energy,” Mimi hates “just sitting around” compared to her years of raising a family, running a business and traveling the world but loves “anything that gets her talking to people. She just loves people!”

As a passionate advocate for behavioral games, Bucy previously launched and sold InnerPlay and PeopleWorks, platforms gamifying fitness, positive habits, and HR solutions. A summa cum laude graduate from Washington University and an MBA holder from Wharton Business School, Bucy is also credentialed in wellness by Harvard University. Formerly with McKinsey and Company, she has consulted for hospitals, pharmaceutical companies like Otsuka, and homecare agencies, including Amada Senior Care Birmingham owned by her husband, Len Everts. She is thrilled to debut StorySparks™ and hopes it makes as much of a difference for other families as it has for hers.
