Before the After

Before the After

Sara Wrobel has been with Causeway Caregivers since 2002, becoming the Executive Director in 2007. Within her years at Causeway, Sara noticed people Causeway serves didn’t have final plans in place and needed help conveying their wishes. Through research, personal experience and conversations with local community professionals, Sara developed Before the After in 2012. Before the After is a combination of planning sessions, a planning packet and years of insight that is shared with attendees so they can “Prepare. Copy. Communicate” their final wishes with loved ones. The packet is for anyone, any age to convey their wishes.
