About this Event

DEATH CAFÉS are open forum conversations about dying & death with the objective 'to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives'

ABOUT THE HOSTS:

HOME HOSPICE GTA is dedicated to delivering hospice palliative care in a non-institutionalized environment where compassion and culturally sensitive human connection are hallmarks: for any one, of any age, at any time, and under any roof.

DEATH POSITIVE TORONTO: A community built by and for those in our city who choose to look at death-dying with curiosity, humour, and a brave commitment to knowing its realism. We approach our shared mortality with hearts and minds open, together desiring to learn more and to love deeply with what time we have.

ABOUT THE FACILITATORS:

Katelyn Hardy is the Creative Director of Death Positive Toronto. Kate has been volunteering with hospice and palliative care at bedside for 5 years and hosts Death Cafes and other events for the Hamilton/Halton area, where she lives. She believes that the more comfortable we become with mortality, the more we will live our lives presently and feel fulfilled.

Kayla Moryoussef is a Community Worker/Registered Social Service Worker from Toronto who has been volunteering and working in end-of-life/palliative care for over seven years. She is a Death Educator, Death Doula candidate with Home Hospice Association, and project manager for all of their Death Cafés across southern Ontario. Kayla truly believes in the profound power of a ‘good death’ and its lasting effects on healthy individuals, families, and communities at-large.
