SHARE helps you get the most out of today by planning for tomorrow through thoughtful discussions about symptoms, communication, care values, healthy activities and plans for future care.

Sessions focus on setting values and priorities as participants build a care plan through the use of interactive resource circles. Both individuals work together to make decisions about future care. These interactive resource circles (displayed digitally via a mobile app) eventually become the road map for future care giving. Making these decisions early empowers the person with the diagnosis to make their own choices about care and helps alleviate future caregiver stress.  The program also focuses on caring for yourself and each other. Participants discuss the things they enjoy doing together and ways for each person to engage in those healthy and pleasant activities.

There is also an optional family session where SHARE partners give their family and friends the opportunity to learn about their SHARE Plan and ways to support it. The purpose of this session is for family and friends to hear from both SHARE partners about the issues that are important to them. The goal is to help them understand the SHARE Plan and their role in helping maintain and implement it.
