Leading the national community in the facilitation of Death Cafes, Home Hospice Association is committed to this important community outreach. HHA Death Cafes meet the important organizational mission to normalize death.
The Caregivers Death Cafe is for anyone who has been in a caregiving role or is currently in a caregiving role in their life. As you know, this can often greatly impact one's relationship with their own mortality, dying and death at-large, grief, and loss.
ABOUT the FACILITATOR:
Cari is a Death Doula with specialized training in Advance Care Planning, bereavement counselling, spiritual counselling, and thanatology. She will complete HHA’s Infant and Pregnancy Loss Doula program in April and is also currently working toward a certificate in children’s bereavement.
Having grown up in a household with disability, Cari knows firsthand that injury and illness often have a radiating impact that extends beyond the individual directly affected. She also understands that those who care for, live with, and/or love and support individuals with disabilities, chronic illness, and chronic pain have their own unique experiences, thoughts, and feelings around mortality and loss. HHA’s Caregiver Death Café has been created to hold space specifically for these experiences.
