Welcome to the LGBT End-of-Life Conversations website
Our mission is to foster effective communication, create community and facilitate care for LGBT persons at the end-of-life. We aim to raise awareness of the unique challenges that this population faces as they age and approach end-of-life. Our goal is to go beyond education and provide LGBT persons and their service providers with tools that will empower them to take positive action in regards to end-of-life planning. One such tool is The British Columbia LGBT End-of-Life Resource Inventory developed to provide an overview of the supports (health, housing, psychological and social support, spiritual, etc.) currently available in our province. There is much talk about community these days and debate over what community actually means. Here at LGBT End-of-Life Conversations, we feel community comes down to sharing end-of-life concerns and issues with our peers and positively supporting and interacting with each other. We encourage and hope you will participate in our discussion forum and join us in creating community by way of engaging and informative conversations.
