The Conversation Project

Everyone has a story. About losing someone close. About what it was like to have the conversation. About not talking about wishes until it was too late.

The Conversation Project is dedicated to helping people talk about their wishes for end-of-life care.

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.

The Celebration Foundation is partnering with the West Osceola Branch Library located in Celebration to sponsor Donna Gray, project coordinator of the Conversation Project in Central Florida to start the Conversation in Celebration.
