Elder Care Santa Rosa CA: Now is The Perfect Time To Get Your Aging Loved One To Sit Down and Start Writing!
Do your children or grandchildren or any other family members know about their ancestry? Do they know about your parents and grandparents? Do they know where they came from (in the world), what some of them did for a living, or anything else? There are certainly web-based businesses that can help you find this ancestral information out, but if you’re looking for an elder care activity that could provide a walk down memory lane and something that will help to leave a legacy behind for you, writing down your life’s story could be a great idea.
You wouldn’t be where you are right now if it weren’t for your ancestors and they are a part of your story. Whether or not you require home care or not, consider sitting down with a pen and paper (or a computer) and writing your life’s story.
What should you share in your life’s story?
It’s your life story, so share anything and everything that you want. You can write about your earliest memories, the people who were around you, the adults who shaped your upbringing, and even special family trips that you took.
Maybe you grew up in the heart of a major city and you never set foot outside of it when you were growing up. Talk about the neighborhood as you recall it. Share funny tales about siblings or friends that you had.
Write about your career and the things that formed the person you eventually became. It’s your life’s story and the more that you share, the more your children, grandchildren, and more generations will have the opportunity to understand what it was like for you growing up.
Who would read your life’s story?
You can write down your life’s story for your eyes only, at least until you’re no longer around. You don’t need any writing skills to compose your life’s story. Just be honest with the events that happened in your life that made you the person that you are now.
When you rely on elder care, writing your life story can make a fun and exciting activity because you may just begin to remember things that you had forgotten a long time ago. That can be fun.
