What Matters and Why

As the song says, its not what you do but the way that you do it! We add another question – why! This is very important because we all tend to think of the support we need as being about the practical things that can be done. For example, an older couple who now need help at home may focus on thinking about whether they want help to shower or clean. Nothing wrong with that but when we do this we tend to forgot about WHY we are needing that help and then we lose touch with the bigger picture and the way forward becomes unclear. Watch the videos for more practical examples.
