About this Death Cafe

In celebration of National Advance Care Planning Day, and in support of the Burlington Compassionate City Charter, Death Café Burlington will be held on April 12th, 2017 from 7-9pm at Saving Thyme.

 

Death Café is an international movement where people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. The objective is 'to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives’.

 

At Death Café, you can expect a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than grief support or a counselling session. It is a respectful, public event where people of all communities and belief systems are welcome to have discussions about death. Interesting conversation is guaranteed!


About C. Elizabeth Dougherty Consulting

After providing family-centred care in the community for a number of years, Elizabeth began working in General Internal Medicine in 1999 supporting individuals and families facing complex illness. Wanting to provide greater support, in 2000 she joined the Psychosocial Oncology Program at the largest cancer treatment centre in Canada and cared for families following diagnosis through to end-of-life. In 2002, Elizabeth was privileged to become the first Palliative Social Worker at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and specialized in therapeutic interventions with individuals and families on the Acute Palliative Care Unit and in the Palliative Outpatient Clinics. In 2015, wanting to continue this meaningful work in the community, Elizabeth launched her Private Practice where she continues to offer individual, family and group support to anyone facing complex illness, grief or bereavement.
