COMMUNITY DEATHCARE MEETING

Wake’s monthly Community Deathcare Meeting is open to anyone working in end-of-life care in the New Orleans area, as a volunteer or professionally, and to anyone interested in doing that work. It’s an opportunity to meet each other, to share resources, and to explore how we can support each other in meeting the needs of our community.

 

Every month we have a spotlight topic. Check the calendar for details.
 

DEATH CAFE

A Death Cafe is a social gathering of people, often strangers from many walks of life, organized for the purpose of discussing death, without any formal agenda or commercial pressures. Anyone can attend and chat informally about different aspects of death, over tea and cake, with a goal of making the subject less taboo and scary. Death Cafes were pioneered by Jon Underwood in the U.K., based on the work of Swiss Sociologist Bernard Cretaz. First held in the U.S. by Lizzy Miles, they are now popular all over the world.

 

Death Cafe is free and open to the public so come on by.  Check out our calendar for the next one!

 

LEGAL CLINIC

The last half hour of Death Cafe includes a legal clinic, where you can learn about and pick up Living Will (Declaration Concerning Self-Sustaining Procedures) and/or Funeral and Disposition of Remains Directive forms (you can also download them directly from our website), fill them out and have them notarized for free.
