Arza Goldstein, who manages a private practice as an End of Life Doula, helping the dying and their families make the time that remains less stressful and more meaningful, will lead a workshop on Wednesday, May 1st at 6 p.m., at FirstLight Home Care of West Suburban Boston, 109 – 123 Highland Avenue, Suite 301, Needham, MA 02494 (directly across from Panera Bread and between TD Bank and Petco).
The program, named “The Conversation Project”, was developed by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, and is centered on how sharing your wishes for end-of-life care can bring you closer to the people you love.
The Conversation Project Nation Survey (2018) underscores the following statistics –
92% of people say that talking with their loved ones about end-of-life care is important.
32% have actually done so.
21% of people say they haven’t had the conversation because they don’t want to upset their loved ones.
53% say they’d be relieved if a loved one started the conversation.
Arza Goldstein is an entrepreneur, journey woman and advocate. Her career path has taken her from Birth Doula to Hospice nurse, community organizer and co-founder of Living Wisely, Dying Well, an organization designed to encourage conversations about death and dying.
Today, after 11 years as a hospice nurse, sitting at the bedside of hundreds of dying patients, Arza has a private practice as an End of Life Doula, helping the dying and their families make the time that remains less stressful and more meaningful. Most of us don’t like to talk about dying but come for this conversation and see how thinking about death and dying makes us live our lives with greater intention.
This interactive presentation encourages participants to ask questions and provide their own anecdotes.
