A life and death conversation
Compassionate Communities is a collective of people who have connected following a palliative care seminar late last year. The group includes aged care staff, chaplains and lay leaders, civil celebrants, palliative care staff and a Community Connections Officer from the council. A recent grant application was made to hold some 'Death Cafes' in McLaren Vale and Willunga, which we are pleased to say was successful.
What is a Death Cafe? A Death Cafe is a place to have conversations about anything to do with death, dying & life over coffee and cake. In a changing world, where community members are becoming more and more disconnected, meeting and chatting over coffee and food helps to open those conversations that are important to have but often hard to have. Participants leave feeling more connected and ready to enjoy life's journey. By far, the most common question asked is: Why does it have to be called a Death Cafe? The title is designed to open up this taboo topic, rather than suppress any mention of death and dying.
