Capture all there is to know about your child or loved one with special needs in the My Special Life™ workbook.
What a beautiful gift to give yourself or someone you know with a loved one with a developmental disability—whether it’s a parent who has a child with autism, cerebral palsy or Down syndrome, or a friends who has a parent with Alzheimer’s disease or Parkinson’s disease. What a comfort to know if anything happens to you, a future caregiver will have all the information he or she needs to help your loved one live a safe and fulfilling life. It will make your loss less traumatic with a continuum of care in place. No searching for a specialist’s phone number, figuring out a medical schedule or questioning a certain behavior.
The My Special Life workbook touches on all the key areas of life—home, school, work, play, health, financial security and legal issues. All the information documented is handed to a future caregiver if you become ill, disabled or pass away.
My Special Life helps families note:
- Family history
- Daily Routine
- Community Involvement
- Likes and Dislikes
- Intervention Programs & Schools
- Employment & Life Skills
- Medical History & Support
- Emotional Well-being & Behaviors
- Financial & Legal Issues
The My Special Life workbook is similar to a ”letter of intent”—a non-binding legal document written by a guardian as part of a future care plan to provide guidance. This workbook not only describes an individual’s past and present situation, but also your vision for their future. It’s recommended families review and revise the information in the workbook annually—perhaps on the individual’s birthday to see all the person has accomplished in the past year and their goals for their next year of life.
It can be an emotional experience sometimes remembering a painful past or thinking about a future without being there for your loved one, but it could be the most loving action you take. The spiral-bound workbook is designed to carry with you, so as you remember different information about your loved one, you can jot it down. It will take you at least several months to complete the workbook initially. But don’t let that deter you or overwhelm you; remember that My Special Life workbook will be the one place a future caregiver can turn to for reliable information, and he or she will love you for it; so get started in the process of documenting.
