Death Demystified with Cream, Sugar and Conversation

HomeCare Matters Home Health and Hospice announces the beginning of a community education series centered on an open conversation about death, dying and end of life issues, all while attendees enjoy coffee and treats.

The HomeCare Matters End of Life Coffee Conversation will take place 6pm, Thursday, August 21st at HomeCare Matters Bucyrus office, 133 South Sandusky Avenue.

“Death always seems to be a taboo subject and not one people feel they can freely talk about.” said Dean Heid, HomeCare Matters Development and Marketing Coordinator. “HomeCare Matters thought it was time to provide the communities we serve a safe and interesting way to be able to communicate their end of life questions, observations and feelings. We based our model on the Death Café, a free form death discussion that has been happening in major American cities. We added a few topics to jump start dialog- Futile Care with our Medical Director, Dr. Larry Leone, Advanced Directives with HomeCare Matters social worker, Lisa Van Houten and a look at what happens next with Wise Funeral Service. No matter what death inquiry you may have, we will address it and learn from the answers delivered by the professionals on hand and each other- plus the coffee while be phenomenal.”
