Difficult Conversations
present
ed by
Laurie Miller, Owner, Apple Care and Companion, and Community Champion of Conversation Ready NTX
Sunday, October 18

10:30 am to 12:00 pm via Zoom

Discussing death and end of life matters can be difficult, uncomfortable, and unsettling, yet it is totally necessary. The pandemic has forced people to see the need for these conversations and it makes it a little more real as well as urgent. Conversation Ready NTX is a grass roots initiative to not only encourage people to have the conversation with their loved ones, but also have their wishes respected. Laurie will share information about Conversation Ready NTX, resources and tools to help you have the conversation about one’s wishes and values.  This presentation is not just for older adults, but for adults of all ages.
