Please feel free to download and print any of the below booklets. If you print more than 10, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with how many you are printing and how you plan to use them. This is for tracking purposes at the request of The Conversation Project.
If you’re ready to join us, we ask you: Have you had the conversation?
In addition to having the conversation, it’s important to choose a health care proxy – the person who will make decisions about your medical care if you become unable to make them for yourself. This new user-friendly guide offers facts and tips necessary to make sound decisions about choosing, and being, a health care proxy.
Our DAGS volunteers can work with your needs. Our presentations can be stand alone or in conjunction with your current efforts and projects. We can help brainstorm ideas of what may work best for your particular goals.
For any questions about The Conversation Project presentations or becoming a DAGS speaker, please contact Laurie Miller at email@example.com
Too many people are dying in a way they wouldn’t choose, and too many of their loved ones are left feeling bereaved, guilty, and uncertain.
It’s time to transform our culture so we shift from not talking about dying to talking about it. It’s time to share the way we want to live at the end of our lives. And it’s time to communicate about the kind of care we want and don’t want for ourselves.
We believe that the place for this to begin is at the kitchen table—not in the intensive care unit—with the people we love, before it’s too late.
Together we can make these difficult conversations easier. We can make sure that our own wishes and those of our loved ones are expressed and respected.
what matters to you, not what‘s the matter with you.
Talking with your loved ones openly and honestly, before a medical crisis happens, gives everyone a shared understanding about what matters most to you at the end of life. You can use this Starter Kit whether you are getting ready to tell someone else what you want, or you want to help someone else get ready to share their wishes.
Our DAGS volunteers can tailor a presentation to your specific needs. We can help train your workers or volunteers to be able to effectively help others get THE conversation started. Our presentations can be 20-90 minutes in length, stand alone or be part of a larger seminar/panel and will highlight The Starter Kit and Proxy Kit.

Our DAGS volunteers can work with you and your clients in whatever way will be most helpful for you.
