Die-alogues is a series of discussion groups hosted by our team at Hospice Northwest, and is intended to start meaningful conversations about end-of-life issues.
As an organization, the mission of Hospice Northwest is to bring better end-of-life care to our community. We focus on creating tools, services and programs that encourage ongoing dialogues with our clients and our community.
Engaging and respectful discussions about death and dying help to remove the fear we feel around this topic, and help us make important decisions about our final wishes in a timely manner.
A unique and thought-provoking topic is selected for each Die-alogues event.
Participants will be invited to discuss these issues and listen to the ideas and experiences of other members. A guest speaker with first hand knowledge of the topic will introduce the subject matter and encourage discussion at individual tables.
The experience of this event will be enhanced with the addition of delicious desserts and coffee. Everyone is welcome at these community minded events.
For up to date information about upcoming Die-alogue events, please check back to this page often, or join our Hospice Northwest Facebook page.
