How we die is part of our legacy to our loved ones and our communities. Most Americans express the hope that as they near the end of their lives they will not be a burden on their families or friends. Yet if we avoid having values-centered conversations about our unique hopes and wishes for care through the end of life, we may be leaving friends and family members in the dark. This omission may result in strife at the bedside and cause lasting damage to the people we love the most.
The Conversation Project aims to have everyone's wishes for care through the end of life expressed and respected. This workshop, led by Harriet Warshaw, Executive Director of The Conversation Project, will introduce participants to The Starter Kit. Through guided reflection and small-group sharing, The Starter Kit will support and motivate you to have a values-based, relationship-building conversation about an experience that touches us all. You are encouraged to attend the follow-up session on December 6 to share your experience so we can support and learn from one another.
