Life’s short…so let’s talk

We created ‘Your Life Talks’, with a mission to raise community awareness of the importance of initiating meaningful conversations within families, to recognize our intrinsic need to remember and celebrate our life and achievements, and share our plans for the future.

We are passionate advocates for encouraging people to take the first important step in having these conversations around how we live and die…before it’s too late. The Conversation Starter Cards we have created are designed to kick-start conversations within families about a loved one’s life story and their wishes for their future.

We aim to facilitate groups with laughter and fun, engaging your audience with interactive discussions.  Our presentations are suitable for Community Organisations, Over 55’s Clubs, Senior’s Clubs, and Carer Support Groups eg Alzheimer’s, Stroke, Cancer, Parkinsons etc, that want to complement their programs and services.

The concept of ‘Your Life Wishes’ and ‘Your Life Stories’ as presented by Jolene at our Sydney Diversional and Recreation Therapy Workshop, definitely struck a chord with participants working in the aged care sector. Jolene had real life examples to demonstrate the use and benefits of these beautifully produced playing card sized conversation starters. She showed how having those important conversations using ‘Your Life Wishes’ ensures that nothing gets missed while simply sharing a part of yourself with others  through ‘Your Life Stories’ can start a conversation that can change a life. Thanks Jolene for making the trip and thanks for providing this great resource that is extremely relevant to the work down by Leisure and lifestyle staff.

Stephanie Bejma -National Education Coordinator, Diversional & Recreation Therapy Australia

‘Jolene came out to speak to the Wise Wellness group at Northpark Private Hospital in November 2016. She gave a most informative and interesting talk about some of the issues people face as they age, and how to address these through information via her website. Jolene used examples from her own life to bring a personal and real perspective to the information. She introduced the issues respectfully and gently, and the group responded with enthusiasm and had plenty of questions. Jolene was such a warm and engaging speaker, and I would not hesitate to recommend her to other organisations’

Thank you so very much for your time and talk at Oxenford Bosom Buddies yesterday. The group loved the talk (I’ve never heard them so quiet) and really would love you to come back.  Again, thank you so much for a really interesting talk – it did get quite a discussion going between the members.
