Legacy is an Important and Often Overlooked Issue

In healthcare settings, faith-based organizations and churches, community centers, and senior living centers, concerns about end of life matters are prompting important conversations around the quality of our lives and what we will leave behind. People are asking themselves:

  • Have I lived my life’s purpose?

  • Is there more for me to become?

  • Do my loved ones know what has mattered most to me, what’s important to me now, and how I want to be remembered?

  • What kind of legacy will I leave?

  • Equally important, do my loved ones know my values when it comes to end of life care?

Being able to talk about these questions can have a dramatic impact on how well a person navigates the inevitable changes that come with aging.

55% of people don’t make important end-of-life decisions before they pass, according to a 2016 Gallup poll.

Stories Matter

One of the great health threats of our time is loneliness and isolation. Studies have shown that people who feel lonely and isolated are 3-5 times more likely to die prematurely.
Giving people a safe space to talk about what’s going on in their lives, to tell their stories without fear of being judged or corrected, can support life changes that lead to better health and well-being.
