Each of us has a unique, valuable and important life story. The opportunity to tell your own life story has very rewarding outcomes:
- Stronger feeling of self identity and self esteem
- Provide a record of your history, culture and beliefs
- Educate others about your perspective
- Preserve the memory of who you were before illness or disease
- Assist staff to provide 'Person-Centred Care'
- Build social connectedness through shared experiences
The most interesting thing about you is not your net worth, possessions or position of power.
The most interesting thing about you, is your life story.
