Hospice of the Bluegrass will be hosting a public forum on April 16th to help families plan, or at least get the conversation started about, end-of-life care.

The forum is a local outreach event for a national program called "The Conversation Project".

According to The Conversation Project's website, "too many people are dying in a way they wouldn’t choose, and too many of their loved ones are left feeling bereaved, guilty, and uncertain. It’s time to transform our culture so we shift from not talking about dying to talking about it. It’s time to share the way we want to live at the end of our lives."

In recognition of Healthcare Decisions Day on Tuesday, April 16th, Hospice of the Bluegrass is inviting the public to their Grief and Loss Center at 2409 Greatstone Point for a free, public forum from 6 to 7:30 pm.

End-of-life experts will be on hand to walk attendees through The Conversation Project, and notaries will also be present to assist with documents.

Those interested must register by April 12th to guarantee a spot. You can call (859) 296-6895 or email education@hospicebg.org.

Also, make sure you tune into ABC 36 News at 12:30 on Wednesday, April 10th for more details about the forum.
