Courageous Conversations

I am starting a new campaign, it’s called,

Courageous Conversations

 

Quite simply, it’s a grassroots effort to encourage people of all ages and stages of health to tell their doctors and health care professionals that they want to talk about and explore their personal thoughts and choices regarding death, dying, and end of life care options. This is not necessarily a one time conversation, but an ongoing relationship that allow doctors and other health care professionals to focus on their expertise of improving health while at the same time understand the patient’s openness to discuss difficult topics such as death, dying, pain, palliative, and hospice care.  Let’s lean into the tension between wanting to talk, a little afraid to talk, and not knowing when the right time to talk is.  The time is now.

There are reminder, business size cards being created for individuals to carry for courage!

The front:

Dying Unafraid with the Support of Hospice Chaplain David Kaminski

David Kaminski has been working in Hospice care for 16 years.  He embodies the Hospice philosophy through the respectful, non-judgmental, compassionate care that he provides the dying.  I really like his approach of supporting individuals who are dying, by helping them explore if they are peaceful and/or what would help them become peaceful within their dying process, helping them dying unafraid.   He emphasizes that it is their story, their life, and their death.  We can use that same philosophy now by examining how we view death, what brings us “peacefulness” & what is meaningful to us in our unique, individual lives.
