About The Conversation Project

The Conversation Project is dedicated to helping people talk about their wishes for end-of-life care.

Talking with your loved ones before a medical crisis happens is the greatest gift you can give them. The Conversation Project believes that the best place for this to begin is at the kitchen table—not in the intensive care unit—with the people we love, before it's too late.

Are you ready to take the first step and have an open and honest conversation with those you love?

The Conversation Project can help you get started. Use the Conversation Starter Kit. It is available for free at www.theconversationproject.org/starter-kit

After you have had the conversation with your loved ones, the next step is to have the conversation with your physician. Your physician is a vital partner in your health care. Use the How to Talk to Your Doctor (in English) and Spanish.

We know it is not easy to talk about end-of-life care. We also know it is one of the most important conversations you will ever have with your loved ones. Remember, the Hospice Team is always here to help in any way we can.
