Hi 29° | Lo 14°

Have the conversation today

Most individuals want to die at home, but 75 percent die in a hospital or nursing home. That happens often because individuals struggle with communicating and preparing for life’s end with their loved ones.

Consider the Conversation is a strong, meaningful and impactful documentary film that confronts this challenge and many others. Learn how some individuals chose to approach their own mortality in this film being shown by the Concord Regional Visiting Nurse Association and hosted by Red River Theatres in Concord on Wednesday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The film weaves information and experiences from patients, families, clinicians, clergy, social workers and experts nationwide to examine multiple perspectives on end-of-life care.

After the film, Ransmeier & Spellman and the Concord Regional Visiting Nurse Association will lead a discussion. There are many reasons to see this film. Maybe your spouse, your parents, or a loved one have not expressed their end-of-life wishes. Maybe you have not. Have the conversation today!

We would like to thank Red River Theatres and underwriter Ransmeier & Spellman who have helped us offer this screening at no charge to the community. Space is limited, so call 224-4093, ext. 5815, to pre-register.

(Mary DeVeau is president/CEO of the Concord Regional Visiting Nurse Association.)
