Death Café Tackles Taboo Topic

Death Café Tackles Taboo Topic
Home Instead Senior Care Brisbane North is hosting a Death Café morning tea in Scarborough on Thursday 8 August in support of Dying to Know Day.

The morning tea brings together health professionals and community members, in an informal and relaxed atmosphere, to talk about experiences, fears, and thoughts about the inevitable.

An expert panel of speakers will be discussing different aspects of death, including Dr Sue Colen, Michele Linton (Registered Nurse), Dr John Rosenberg, Meryam Brown (Psychologist), Tenzin Chodron from Karuna, and Annette Lourigan from George Hartnett Metropolitan Funerals. Home Instead client services manager, Maretti Healy, said the aim of the event was to empower and encourage conversations about death in a relaxed café style.

“This topic remains taboo, despite being a natural part of life,” Maretti said.

“We will talk about palliative care as people may not know what it is about or have enough knowledge about this topic... it is a thought-provoking event encouraging conversation and an enlightening way of living one’s best life and planning for a good death.”

To attend this free event email or call Maretti Healy on 0426 875 365.
