Life journals: A unique way to create a legacy.
The goal at Crossroads Hospice is to provide the highest quality of life for our patients while supporting family members. Experience has taught us there are a few things most people want at the end of life:
- To be remembered
- To pass down their life experiences and beliefs
- To know that their life mattered
As a way to fulfill these desires, Crossroads helps patients create a Life Journal to pass on their experiences and advice.
Creating the journal
Life Journals are compiled by volunteers from the community and by students in local colleges and universities. The journal creators spend time with the patient gathering stories and experiences important to them. They work with family members to gather photographs. The photos and stories are combined to create a beautiful hardback book, a Life Journal, for the family to cherish for years to come. The Life Journal is a complementary offering from Crossroads Hospice. It is what we call our Gift of Blessings and Gratitude.
