    The Caregivers Death Café is for anyone who is currently, or who has ever been, in a caregiving role. Providing care to someone who is sick or facing death can often greatly impact the caregiver’s relationship with their own mortality. This Death Café gives caregivers the chance to openly talk about their feelings, thoughts, and experiences around dying, death, grief, and loss.

    Ottawa Public Library is partnering with the Home Hospice Association to offer death cafés at various locations and with various themes. Check out the OPL website for other cafés.
