End of Life Conversations

End of Life Conversations is modelled on the international Death Café movement and provides an opportunity for the community to come together face to face, to share their stories of death and dying, and learn from the experiences of others.

Led by experienced End of Life Doula, Karen Scull the group directed discussion provides a safe and welcoming space to explore how we can help ourselves and others live well and die well in the final chapter of life. This is a quarterly event.

Please sign up to our Facebook page and bi-monthly eNews for the latest Hospice Conversations event updates.

Legacy Conversations

This event will focus on the topic of Wills and how people can make their final wishes known. No questions will be left unanswered as a panel of experts take questions from Hospice Manager, Emmalee Bell and the local community.
