The Creative Legacy Ancestry program is geared toward older adults who would like to investigate and learn more about their heritage by tracing family history back to their ancestors, to discover their roots and family values. This tells a powerful story to future generations about where they came from and what their ancestors had overcome during their lifetime in a past era, and it creates a treasured family heirloom.
The program is offered in several modalities, as each individual has their own purpose and desire. One may want to simply put together notes and facts that they already possess. Others may choose to dig deeper, by searching out their family tree or even testing their DNA, using outside sources such as the Internet, government archives, military records, immigration documents and more. The Creative Legacy coach will assist every step of the way, using compassion, respect and various sensory techniques to evoke precious memories.
For best results, the coach will initially spend time with the client in order for both to get to know each other and develop a special bond. When the client is ready, goals are agreed, and we will estimate the number of visits that will best serve their objectives. Then we begin the rich and unique journey together.
Our ancestry program is a meaningful and fulfilling experience which leaves clients content that their heritage will be remembered and respected from generation to generation.
For thousands of years, our ancestors have passed along their wisdom and preserved history by storytelling. It is our duty to capture as much information as we can about our heritage. It may not be a simple task, but it is certainly a rewarding one.
This program supports the "meaningful aging" philosophy that Creative Legacy was built upon.
