Life stories

The life story service is a program in which we work with you to document your life or particular times of your life as you choose. 

How does the service operate?

When you tell us you want your life story recorded, we first meet with you to explain what we do and gain an understanding of what you want to document as your story.

Next, we meet with you for an hour or so every week (or as otherwise agreed) for about six weeks and record your story.

In between our meetings, we transcribe the story (convert it to text) for you to review.

When the story is all told, we provide you with a copy of your story, nicely printed and ready to show to your family and friends.

Who can ask for a life story?

If you are a client accessing Palliative Care ACT services, young or old, you can ask for your life story to be documented.

Where is the service delivered?

We come to you or meet you where you are comfortable talking with us.

Who delivers the service?

Life stories are prepared by trained volunteers with specific life story writing skills. They work with you to document your story the way you want it documented.
