Leaving a Legacy — Talking with Loved Ones

For many of our donors, leaving a gift to Broadmead Care in their Will is a way to celebrate their life and values. A gift in your Will to help protect the future for Canada’s veterans, seniors, and adults with disabilities says a lot about who you are and what you care about. 

I know these are decisions that are not taken lightly. Leaving a gift in your Will is often discussed with a partner or loved ones to make sure that everyone is on the same page, and that your wishes are honoured. 

Having this important conversation can sound uncomfortable. But it doesn’t have to be! Talking about your values and the change you want to see in the world can kick-start the conversation, and even motivate your loved ones. Here are three questions to get you started:

  • How do you hope our family history and life story will live on after we are gone?
  • How will the causes or charitable work we’ve invested in continue?
  • What kind of message do we want to pass on to our kids and grandkids about helping others?

These important questions shouldn’t be left unanswered. Explore more tips from our partners at Will Power to help start the conversation with your loved ones . If you’re ready to go ahead and leave a gift in your Will to Broadmead Care, you can always use the tools and resources on the Will Power website to get started .
