Death - Hospice Care

We began a 2 part series:  Let’s Talk About Death, where we explored new thinking around death and end-of-life care.

We started our series by covering the often-misunderstood topic of hospice. Our panelists from the hospice care community discussed the basics and misconceptions around hospice and how families can benefit from this comfort care.

Join us for our very last TED Talk Discussion Group!  The series is ending after 4 years!  This month’s talk will be on climate change.

Death - Duola

This was the second program in our series:  Let’s Talk About Death, where we explore new thinking around death and end-of-life care.

In this session, we’ll learned about the new work of Death Doulas, trained but non-medical professionals who provides physical, emotional and spiritual support at the end of life. Death Doulas Jane Whitlock and Anne Murphy provided a variety of supportive services to families who are facing death of a loved one, including creating family rituals, legacy planning, personalized memorials and celebrations, and how to make this transitional meaningful and personal.
