DEATH CAFÉ

WHAT IS A DEATH CAFÉ? 

Death Cafés are open forum dialogues about death and dying, with no agenda otherwise. The aim is to bring strangers together to engage in dialogue about the last great taboo, in hopes that they will extend this dialogue to their friends, families, and communities. The death cafe is free for all to attend!

WHY A DEATH CAFÉ? 

There is a belief that dying and death are a part of life to avoid until they can no longer be avoided. Death Cafes are here to move us towards our own mortality, not away from it. Home Hospice Association is proud to be part of the International Death Cafe Movement. HHA runs in person and virtual death cafes to invite conversation, explore concepts of life, dying and death. Normalizing death is a key mission for this charity so more and more people can eliminate their fears surrounding it.

HHA is delighted to host death cafes in communities when invited to do so!

Any person that wants to host their own death cafe for their community is encouraged and HHA is glad to lend a helping hand to support these cafes outside of our association. 

FUTURE OF THE DEATH CAFÉ 

 

COVID-19 has had a huge impact on our world but it is our priority to ensure access for hospice care and it’s programs are maintained during such times. HHA keeps the conversation about death going through the continuation of our virtual death cafes which makes it easier for everyone to access. 

 

HHA continues its mission to expand the death cafes and make it more well known to everyone. A new death cafe specifically for parents and guardians is currently in development and will begin in August.
