Our research

open bookOur research involves gathering as many sets of stories as we can, and analyzing them for themes that might help caregivers understand what is important to their loved ones as they approach the end of their life.

We seek to understand:

  • What are the main themes or ideas that people try to communicate to those closest to them?

  • What kinds of stories do they choose (whether consciously or subconsciously) to communicate those themes?

  • Are men’s stories are different from women’s stories?

  • Are the stories told different depending on how old one is?

  • Are different types of stories told to spouses, to children, to friends or relatives?
