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. Please also review the list of Canadian and International publications from our team. 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.
