The Conversation Project

Hospice Life Care, a program of the Holyoke Visiting Nurses Association, is a proud supporter of The Conversation Project.


The Conversation Project is a public campaign that is gaining momentum throughout the country. The goal is simple: to have everyone's end-of-life wishes expressed and respected.

It was co-founded by Pulitzer Prize winning Ellen Goodman and developed in collaboration with the INSTITUTE FOR HEALTHCARE IMPROVEMENT.

Hospice Life Care has presented The Conversation Project to local Council on Aging Centers, Skilled Nursing and Assisted Living Facilities, and community organizations.

If you are interested in bringing The Conversation Project to your venue, please call Jennifer Kielbasa at (413) 533-3923 or e-mail her at jkielbasa@holyokevna.org

"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.

If you're ready to join us, we ask you: Have you had the conversation?"
