Mortality Over Muffins
Considering end-of-life decisions in an informal, thoughtful, (and even fun) way
If you can’t beat it, plan for it.
Mortality over Muffins is a café-style program led by RVNA’s hospice experts and hosted by our partners and friends in neighboring towns. The program is for all ages and the intent is simple: to get everybody thinking and talking about end of life choices and decisions – well before they happen. If we take the time to do this now, it will make the end of our lives more meaningful and less stressful for both ourselves and our loved ones. It reflects who we are, what we want, and what is important to us.
Mortality Over Muffins is a two-part program. Session 1 is for discussion, education, stories, and a little bit of homework. Session 2 is a for participants to share their thoughts, progress, and experiences following the first session.
If you are interesting in partnering with RVNA on a Mortality over Muffins program, please contact us at 203-438-5555 x1033.
Mortality over Muffins is sponsored by the Union Savings Bank Foundation.
