Caring Cards - getting the conversation started

Saturday, March 9, 2013

Kathie Nitz - Her story

"I was inspired to create these cards as a way to connect with my mom. As her caregiver, I could see she was increasingly having difficulty remembering day-to-day activities and depending on me to generate our conversations.
Caring Cards enabled me to easily gain access to her wisdom and stories she was delighted to share. We've spent many hours chatting, laughing and learning a lot about each other.
Now it's your turn. My hope is that Caring Cards will generate interesting conversations and create memorable moments for you, too. Enjoy!"

You feel great when you see a senior's eyes light up as you unlock a long-forgotten, enjoyable memory. With Caring Cards, you can help this happen every day!
Use caring cards to start a conversation:

  • During mealtimes.
  • Over morning coffee.
  • While helping others with daily tasks.
  • When traveling together.

Here is a few to get you started:
1) What world events had the most impact on you while you were growing up?
2) What food or drink was a special treat when you were a child?
3) What clothing was popular when you were a young adult?

To us it's personal
