WHEN TO USE THE WISHES AND VALUES CARDS

 

To build self-awareness:

The cards can help reveal the essence of one’s life, and in turn can help to uncover the values, stories and beliefs your client or loved one wants to hand down.

 

If you require help/support:

Often when we are ill or can’t take care of all of our needs, those helping us tend to focus on supporting our physical needs. Just as important is to ensure we are nurturing our souls and experiencing joy and satisfaction, even when we are physically or cognitively challenged. The cards will help to uncover our personal sources of joy and satisfaction and help us communicate them to the individuals supporting us.

 

At end of life:

The approaching death of a loved one may be painful to think about and even more difficult to talk about. Wishes and Values Cards can offer a way to bring up important topics and pose questions that allow your client or loved one to take the conversations to wherever she or she needs it to go.
