Creating a Legacy
Many families find it comforting to spend time together talking about memories of their loved one’s life as they travel the hospice journey together.
Here are some tools that may be helpful.
Since 2003, StoryCorps has given hundreds of thousands of Americans the chance to record interviews about their lives to pass wisdom from one generation to the next and to leave a legacy for the future.
It can be very meaningful for your loved one to talk about their memories, dreams and passions in life. Use the questions below or think up some of your own. If you’d like a personal copy of the Legacy Card below, contact Barbara Hawes at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll mail it to you.
