COMMUNITY PARTNERS

About

The Conversation Project in Boulder County formed in 2013, based on the nationally-acclaimed work of Boston Globe columnist and author, Ellen Goodman. Her project took root after she had the experience of guiding her dying mother’s care. Unfortunately, they had never broached this delicate subject and Ellen found herself adrift, not knowing about her mother's end-of-life wishes.

Why is it Important?

92% of Americans say that it is important to have end-of-life conversations, but only 32% have actually had them. If loved ones don't know what matters most to you, they are left with the distress of guessing and uncertainty at an already difficult time. Starting end-of-life conversations is never easy – but families and health care professionals report feelings of relief when the subject is addressed. Advance care planning and the conversation can help ensure that your end-of-life wishes are heard and respected.
