There is one thing in life that is certain, but it is not something we often talk about.
At Death Café, you are invited to gather with others to drink tea and coffee, eat cake and discuss death and the ways we can make the most of our (finite) lives. The event will provide attendees valuable information that they can use in planning to age and die well, from a legal, financial and practical point of view.
Guests include Dr Vasudha Chandra, Willis & Bowring Solicitor Jayne Humphreys, End of Life Doula Kim Somerville and Author, Journalist and Palliative Care Volunteer Margaret Rice. Individual guest presentations will be made with a group discussion then being facilitated by Home Instead Senior Care’s Karen Buckley. Attendees will then have an opportunity to speak one on one with guests. It is not a bereavement or counselling session but rather a relaxed and welcoming space to share perspectives on a topic that affects everyone eventually.
Join us for a conversation and have your questions answered about death, dying, practical preparations and options available for end of life.
“Death Café was launched by Britons Jon Underwood and his mum, psychotherapist and counsellor Sue Barsky Reid in 2011. They went on to offer Death Cafés in funky coffee shops, people’s houses, cemeteries and even yurts and established a blueprint to get more people up-and-running their own. Death Cafés have since taken off around the world, with more than 4,500 held to date.”—FuneralZone.com.au
