Speaking Easy Over Dinner Prompts Talks About Advance Care Plans
The Horizon Foundation and its Speak(easy) Howard campaign will be hosting a new event designed to encourage Howard County residents to connect with their loved ones and start a conversation about their advance care plan. The event, Speaking Easy Over Dinner, will be Sept. 30 and offers residents a pre-made dinner for four to be delivered to their home along with a guided conversation to talk through their health care wishes.
"Now more than ever, staying connected is on everyone's mind – and we're all looking for new ways to get in touch," said Nikki Highsmith Vernick, president and CEO of the Horizon Foundation, in a statement. "With the COVID-19 pandemic bringing the importance of advance care planning into a new light, our goal for Speaking Easy Over Dinner is to provide a creative way to talk with your loved ones about the things that would matter most to you if a time came when you couldn't speak for yourself."
Howard County residents can sign up and choose their meal kit here.
