When it comes to end-of-life care, talking matters. Do you know what your loved ones want as they age? Do you know who to choose as the agent who will act on your behalf should you be unable to speak for yourself? While no single conversation can cover all the decisions your family might face, having “THE” conversation can provide a shared understanding of what matters most to you and your loved ones. Join us as we explore how to begin talking about end-of-life wishes with your family. After all, one conversation can make all the difference.
Having “THE” Conversation: Talking With Loved Ones About Their Wishes is the fifth of Sagepoint’s Community Education Series. The purpose of this series is to help educate members of the Southern Maryland community on a variety of topics related to healthcare and aging. We hope that you will benefit from this informative session and find it useful for you and your family.

The Conversation Project, co-founded by Pulitzer Prize-winner Ellen Goodman, launched in collaboration with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI,) and supported by Cambia Health Foundation, is a public engagement campaign with a goal that is both simple and transformative: to ensure that every one’s wishes for end-of-life care are expressed and respected. Too many people die in a manner they would not choose and too many of their loved ones are left feeling bereaved, guilty, and uncertain. The Conversation Project offers people the tools, guidance, and resources they need to process their final desires for their life and begin talking with their loved ones, in a comfortable setting, about their wishes and preferences.
