Quality of Life Tools: Bloom Where You Are Planted  (Mar 2020)

The goal of quality of life considerations is to help make your clients/beneficiaries feel valued and to appreciate life despite their challenges. In most cases, distribution requests between beneficiaries and professionals are framed as necessities or needs rather than improving their quality of  life. Learn tools and specific recommendations of large and small distributions for evaluating requests in part through quality of life considerations.
