Council on Aging Forum on End of Life Conversation Wednesday, Apr. 4, 1-2:30 p.m. 
The Conversation Project is dedicated to helping people talk about their wishes for end-of-life care.Too many people are dying in a way they wouldn’t choose, and too many of their loved ones are left feeling bereaved, guilty, and uncertain. It’s time to transform our culture so we shift from not talking about dying to talking about it. It’s time to share the way we want to live at the end of our lives. And it’s time to communicate about the kind of care we want and don’t want for ourselves. If you’re ready to join us, we ask you: Have you had the conversation? This event is free, open to the public and registration is not required. For more information, View the Flyer, contact Emma Watkins 617-349-6060 or email:
