Death Café (FULL)
Thursday, September 19, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm| Free
Looking for a new community to explore topics related to death?
At a Death Café, people gather to eat cake, drink tea, and discuss death. Iona’s Take Charge/Age Well Academy, an educational program for proactive adults planning for their futures, is excited to offer this new gathering and conversation opportunity for people to come together and talk about death.
About the Death Café
The first Death Cafe was offered in the UK in September 2011. Since then, the model has expanded to more than 7,500 groups, with conversations and meet-ups happening across the globe. Death Cafés are discussion groups, not grief support groups or counseling sessions.
In a Death Café, the objective is to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives. The discussion is group directed, and there is no agenda, objectives, or themes.
Iona’s Death Café is facilitated by Dixcy Bosley, RN, MSN, FNP. Prior to joining the Iona Care Management team, Dixcy served as a hospice nurse in various community settings. She is passionate about claiming life by demystifying death for young and old people alike.

Where: Iona Senior Services: 4125 Albemarle Street NW, Washington, DC 20016.
