Ellen Goodman: The Conversation Project


Last Updated on October 20, 2020

Growing Bolder is about seizing the opportunity of age and making the rest of your life the best of your life. But we are mortal beings and decline, and ultimately death is inevitable.

With 10,000 of us turning 65 every day there is a deafening silence when it comes to talking about our wishes for end-of-life-care. That inability to simply have the conversation can lead to difficulty, confusion, frustration, pain, suffering and guilt. So why don’t we do it? Why don’t we have the conversation?

Ellen Goodman understands the struggle from her personal experiences, and as the Co-Founder and Director of The Conversation Project, she’s now on a mission to help all of us talk about our wishes for end-of-life care: to help you have the conversation with those you care for and those who may have to help you in your final days.
