Look Back, Plan Forward


This project was completed in September 2016


Look Back, Plan Forward Website PreviewLook Back, Plan Forward was created to support individuals with disabilities and people who are aging; along with their family caregivers and service providers, by offering a resource to capture their personal stories. The tool is designed to help you capture your life stories in a way that helps others to better understand your history, values, preferences and support needs.

On the site you can:

  • Enter your personal history.
  • Print your personal history to share with family, friends, health care providers, and home care providers.
  • Save your personal history so you can update it over time.

Sharing your history with trusted family, friends, and providers can help others to understand who you are and support you in the way you prefer.

Look Back, Plan Forward was developed under grant CFDA 93.779 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
