About this Death Cafe

Hospice Help Foundation introduced the Death Cafe  to the NH Seacoast one year ago and since that time, large numbers of people have come to join in the community conversation on death, dying, and living life to the fullest. We offer this so that people have a safe setting in which to hold this sometimes awkward conversation. Now, partnering the the Portsmouth Public Library, our Death Cafe is being held quarterly. We believe that death is no conversation killer, and invite you to join us in a thoughtful and thought-provoking conversation where you can share what's on your mind.

Join us on Saturday, October 8th for coffee, cake, and to discuss your inevitable demise. Our Death Cafe brings community members together in small group settings with experienced facilitators who particpate with you in the conversation. There's no agenda: you decide where the conversation goes. Pre-registration is necessary so RSVP to Janet@hhelpfoundation.org or by calling 603-766-0444
