“Writing one’s legacy is a privilege that nurtures and inspires future generations”


- Mary Ann Beaudin, Hospice Muskoka Volunteer

A legacy is about creating meaning in one’s life and death. How we live until we die speaks volumes about our life and goes beyond material objects. Exploring what made a difference in our lives is a powerful experience. Creating connections with those we love and keeping those stories alive is a priceless gift we can leave our loved ones.

Hospice Muskoka’s “Stories of the Heart” volunteers work with our clients to capture their memories and stories, share and preserve their values and wisdom in a confidential secure way.  The sharing of their final “Stories of the Heart” is at the discretion of our clients. Over time, we have found that these stories and insights help families with their loss, grief and bereavement and are often used to help create eulogies and memorials.
