Compose Your Life Song

Caregiver and Senior Holding Hands

Your life is your song. Every year, every day, every moment you’re composing a part of it. What do you want your song to sound like? What effect do you want it to have on others? And how do you want it to end?

Orchestrating a harmonious grand finale, and the years leading up to it, takes careful planning and preparation. Your final years can be a time of beautiful moments, cherished memories and peace of mind for you and your loved ones, but the final work of art is up to you.

Your personal accomplishments and end-of-life plans can impact your life song, either for yourself or someone for whom you care. These resources can help you compose a meaningful melody that will enhance your life or that of someone you love.
