From the Council on Aging, on March 15, 2018: A public forum on The Conversation Project, which is dedicated to helping people talk about their wishes for end-of-life care, is planned for 1 to 2:30 p.m. April 4 at the Citywide Senior Center, 806 Massachusetts Ave., Central Square.

“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,” organizers say. “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.”

This event is free and open to the public; registration is not required.
