So often we wait until it is too late to hear the stories and wisdom from those we love.
“A few years ago, for my grandmother’s 90th birthday our family got together and I started hearing all these amazing stories from her life and the flow on stories from my parents and other family members. All stories I had never heard before!” – Simone
We all have life experiences that can be often forgotten, relegated to stay forever just in our memories. It’s such a wakeup call to be more intentional in hearing your loved one’s life stories.
Retirement can bring many opportunities, as well as pose potential challenges. NSW Government has a variety of guides to help with finances, health, lifestyle and support services that are available.
Volunteering at all ages is a rewarding experience. Whether you are looking for volunteer opportunities as a retiree or looking at volunteering with seniors there are many organisations looking for volunteers.
Want to start recording your life story or a loved one’s life story, but don’t know where to start? A Lasting Tale has a free app with questions designed to guide you through the recording process.
The aged care system can be quite daunting, My Aged Care from the Australian Goverment has all the resources and guides in one place, or you can use the click guide to direct you straight to the applicable resource for you or your loved one’s situation.
