Advance care planning gets to be very clinical, and obviously, that’s very important, but End in Mind comes in with this whole top layer of the importance of conversation — knowing that a lot of times people need a spark, something to help us have these conversations.

No one ever plans on dying yet, we all do. Why is this such a surprise? Wouldn't be better if everyone knew what and how before it happens. End in Mind provides the conversation starters needed to bring safety, sense, dignity, and joy to talking about the End with those we love.
