Narrative Care Program at Veterans Health Unit

Memories are a priceless gift. The goal of the Narrative Care program is to look at each person's unique life experiences, life lessons, values and traditions and capture these in their own words. It offers every participant an opportunity to share his or her legacy with families and friends. The program simplifies the task of recording an autobiography with an organized and thought-provoking set of questions. It is a fantastic opportunity to make life-story writing fun and manageable.

Interested veterans are paired with staff members and/or volunteers to record stories, select pictures to help tell the story and any other memorable mementos of the past. Upon completion, the veteran is presented with a bound book to share with their loved ones. The program is a remarkable journey to complete.
