About

If you would love to help a patient, who is terminally ill, leave a life story to share with family members, this is a great opportunity for you! Become a personal historian. Help a hospice patient tell or write their life story. Life story writing and reminiscence can improve the mood and quality of life for adults with more years behind them than ahead of them. This would consist of visits with hospice patient and allowing them to share their stories. It can be recorded in writing or video (with consent of patient). You must be able to listen well and gently elicit stories and messages. Offer compassion and trust. This story is then given to the loved ones of the patient to be carried on throughout generations to come. How much joy would it be to share your time with a patient, recording their story, and sharing with their loved ones?
