Death is inevitable. We can’t change that fact. We can change our relationship to it. We can bring death out of the closet.

Contemplate it. Talk about it. Plan for it. Allow it to inform the way we live—the choices we make. How we die is an extension of how we live.

Use the resources gathered here to develop your death literacy—the practical know-how needed to plan well for the end of life—for yourself or others.


Upcoming Event

It’s not IF, it’s WHEN . . . making informed decisions about end-of-life plans for yourself and others

Join us on Saturday, April 13, 3:00-4:30 at the Danby Town Hall (1830 Danby Road) as we explore types of advance directives, including the Health Care Proxy form and living will—and the importance of completing your paperwork and sharing it with the right people. Get the information, forms, and inspiration to start your planning.
