A few tips on creating your story:

Powerful resident and family stories answer these three questions:

  • What happened?
  • How did the actions of the healthcare providers affect your experience?
  • Why does your story matter to your well-being?

Before you tell your story, ask yourself:

  • What do I hope for as a result of telling my story?
  • What am I willing to share?
  • What does my family not want me to talk about?
  • How do I feel about my story being shared via video, word of mouth, or in written form?
  • What support do I need to tell my story?

Keep it simple and tell it in your own words.
