We talk about everything, so shouldn’t we talk about what is important to us, as individuals, as we age and approach the end of life? If you have not started the conversation, you are not alone. Talking is easy but a meaningful conversation about life’s challenges and our needs can be very difficult. The 2012 National Senior Strategy identified that less than 50% of Canadians had had a conversation with a family member or friend about what health care treatments they would and wouldn’t want if they were ill and unable to communicate.

Come join them to better understand how to begin these conversations and prevent misunderstandings through a shared reality. Meet Donna Maodus and Heidi Salib, co-founders of TLC: Timely Life-Plan Conversations, a service that facilitates the gathering, documenting and sharing of an individual’s life-plan.
This presentation will be in English.
