End of Life Care- The Conversation Project

 

No one really likes to think about what may happen at the end of their life, much less talk to anyone about it. The unfortunate thing is that many people worry about what will happen to them but don't talk or do anything about it. In reality, if we talk about our fears, our hopes, and our end of life care wishes, we will most likely feel better, and just as importantly, will have made known what we want for ourselves for when that time comes. Sharing that information with loved ones can be a great help to them. Individuals who have to make end of life health care decisions for loved ones often feel guilty and burdened over having to make decisions that they are not sure are in line with what their loved one's wishes are.

The Conversation Project was started to help people clarify their thoughts and open communication with loved ones about their end of life care wishes. 
From their website:
 
"Too many people are dying in a way they wouldn’t choose, and too many of their loved ones are left feeling bereaved, guilty, and uncertain.

It’s time to transform our culture so we shift from not talking about dying to talking about it. It’s time to share the way we want to live at the end of our lives. And it’s time to communicate about the kind of care we want and don’t want for ourselves.

We believe that the place for this to begin is at the kitchen table—not in the intensive care unit—with the people we love, before it’s too late."

To help accomplish this, they have created an incredibly sensitive and helpful free starter kit. 

Here is a link to their website:
