Preview of Helpful app

Your loved one may not always know their plans from day to day, but they do have some general ideas on what they want their life to be like and they have expectations about how things should go. You must find out about these ideas and expectations. All this allows you to anticipate possible futures and outcomes, so you can start putting things in place now to support your loved one in achieving their long-term vision.

How they view themselves and the management of their health conditions is especially important because their attitude on this is reflective of their present and future self-care effort and indicative of their ability to remain independent.

 Topics to help you get started…

  • Where they want to live out their remaining years

  • What they want to do to stay socially engaged and active

  • Goals they still want to accomplish

  • What they’re afraid to give up

  • Where and when they feel they struggle and with what

  • How they view their health conditions

  • How they prefer to spend most days or weekends

  • The “little things” that are important to them - the things that motivate them (attending all events for grandkids, going to the casino every once in a while, keeping an immaculate home, maintaining a garden, traveling)
