Taking care of an older family member or friend can be stressful. But so is being that person. One wonderful way to ease the stress burden on both of you: Help the person close to you define and preserve his or her legacy. “Legacy" may not be a word most of us use in everyday conversation, but it’s a concept people tend to give considerable thought to once they head north of their 60s and 70s. Shaping and understanding your legacy refers to sorting out what your life has meant, and what kind of memories of you are apt to live on after you die. What a person learns and leaves is as individual as his fingerprints. But I found some heartening insights into common themes in this new research from Priceless Legacy, a company that turns interviews with older adults into life stories in print or video format. An analysis of its projects shows that the top five life lessons shared by people ages 65 to 104 are: 1. The simple things matter most. 2. Humor and time cure most pains. 3. There’s more satisfaction in giving than getting. Service to others is the most satisfying activity. 4. Choose your spouse carefully. It will be your most important decision. 5. Work hard and in a field or role that you enjoy.
