Join us at our next End-of-Life Open House, Sunday, April 23 at 5 PM - 7 PM! This free event is open to the community and is a great opportunity to meet some of the doulas on our end-of-life team. This is a great opportunity for individuals and families to learn about end-of-life support, get questions answered, and meet the doulas of Family Ways, LLC. Past, present, and future clients all welcome!
We will meet in our home office: 11000 Rosemont Drive, Rockville, MD 20852. There is a side entrance to the downstairs office; just go past the front of the house. We are about a half mile from 270/495. If you choose to drive, you can park on our lot or on Rosemont Drive; there is plenty of space as we are in a residential neighborhood. Please park only in our lot or on our side of the street; kindly do not block our neighbors.
The event itself is free to attend. Small snacks will be provided; please consider bring a light snack to share. Please RSVP by email or through Facebook so we know to expect you, as the office space is modest and we need to be mindful of seating availability.
PLEASE NOTE: The meet-the-doulas event will be hosted concurrent with our upcoming Death Café, an agenda-free discussion of death and the end of life. Please come with questions, curiosity, and an open mind, and let's begin the discussion!
WHAT IS DEATH CAFE?
At a Death Café people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. Our objective is 'to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.' A Death Café is a group-directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counseling session.
HISTORY OF DEATH CAFE:
Jon Underwood founded Death Café based on the work of Bernard Crettaz. Lizzy Miles was the first person to offer Death Café in the US.
