Event description
Join us for our 60th CFD Death Café before we go on winter break!

About this Event

At Death Café, the aim is to increase awareness of death to help people make the most of their finite lives. At a CFD Death Café, each conversation is preceded with a brief presentation to expand our understanding of different topics related to dying and death

The Circle of Friends for the Dying (CFD) Death Café has no theme and is not a grief support group. Come mingle and enjoy our cakes, coffee, and tea. No fee, though donations for future Death Cafés are greatly appreciated. All are welcome.

Circle of Friends for the Dying is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in the Mid-Hudson Valley chartered to bring compassionate, competent care to individuals and their families by providing a Home filled with a circle of community support. Circle Home will provide access to quality end-of-life care in a warm and supportive setting. www.cfdhv.org

Why is our mission so important? Most people want to die at home, and terminally ill people under hospice care and with the support of 24/7 care from family, friends, or a hired caregiver are able to fulfill that wish. But many of us cannot. We may live alone, without the support of family or friends or the means to hire caregivers. An aging partner or overwhelmed working family member with young children may not be able to care for us. Ulster and Dutchess Counties currently have no hospice residence or hospital-based hospice unit. With your support we will open the doors to Circle Home in 2020, the first Comfort Care Home for the Dying in Ulster County, NY

CFD Death Café will be on winter break from January - March, back in April 2020!

Wishing you happiest of holidays and we look forward to gathering one last time before the holiday.
