Welcome to our first podcast of 2021! We couldn’t have asked for better guests than the creators of The Death Deck. Lori Locicero and Lisa Pahl share with Jerry and Helen how they teamed up to create a set of cards that work as conversation starters for end of life wishes. Using humor, reflection, and creativity, The Death Deck makes us think about death with less dread. The more you talk about it, the easier it becomes. With Lisa’s background as a hospice social worker and Lori’s personal experience with her terminally-ill husband, they had the special knowledge to know just we need to get comfortable with those dreaded “death discussions”. You can order a set of cards for yourself at thedeathdeck.com. On the Death Deck website you’ll also find information about the creators, and a connection to Lori’s personal website. The cards are easy to use and don’t cost much - use them with your partner, family, or friends! You’ll find more information at theheartofhospice.com to help you navigate hospice care and advance planning discussions. No matter where you are in your hospice journey - you are The Heart of Hospice!
