Foster meaningful and effective conversations about end-of-life care

While 82% of Americans say that it is important to put end-of-life wishes in writing, only 23% have actually done it.

What is The Conversation Project?

The Conversation Project in Boulder County formed in 2013, based on the nationally-acclaimed work of Boston Globe columnist and author, Ellen Goodman. Her project took root after she had the experience of guiding her dying mother's care. Unfortunately, they had never broached this delicate subject and Ellen found herself adrift, not knowing what her mother's end-of-life care wishes would be.


The mission of The Conversation Project is to foster meaningful and effective conversations about end-of-life care.

    I appreciate the Conversation Project's focus on one's personal values rather than just an emphasis on legal or medical directives.
