Community Education: Living Well Throughout Dying

Clarehouse envisions a future where people and families all across our community have the expectation of living well dying - in comfort, with dignity, and supported by expert and compassionate people.

This kind of care doesn’t just happen. It starts with a conversation that leads to awareness, then inspires focused effort, preparation and organization in the very special area of end-of- life care planning.

Achieving the highest possible quality of life matters until the very last moment.

Join us for a conversation…

Dying Dialogues 2017

Clarehouse, in partnership with the University of Tulsa, the University of Oklahoma-Tulsa and Magic City books, presents the annual Dying Dialogues series.  In a time of constant technological communication, where is the time and skill for face-to-face conversations? Join us as we advance the discussion about end-of-life care and wishes, opening our minds and hearts to dialogue about death and dying. Three evenings are dedicated to starting the conversation, sharing information and providing the tools needed to begin the process of putting one’s priorities and desires into action. All are free and open to the public.
