Townsend-Smith Foundation: Informal Discussion about Death and Dying

A Committee within Townsend Smith and volunteers have planned the Death Cafe to provide a comfortable venue to discuss wishes, questions, hopes, experiences with death and dying. Bryden’s Pub offers such a venue, and those attending can order a beverage along with snacks which we will provide.

Death Cafes are part of a global movement to bring people together to increase awareness about death with the purpose of promoting making the most of our lives. Often Hospices organize such a group during Palliative Care week. A respectful, relaxed environment is provided at the Cafe to encourage people attending to share their views related to death and dying and how it relates to their lives.This is not a grief or bereavement support group but a discussion about future wishes, questions and concerns. We have chosen autumn as Hallowe’en time is a sort of scary but celebratory time too. We hope this event will be useful and informative.

There will be a host/facilitator to guide us through the evening. All are welcome to share in this important discussion.
