We create the tools, you start the conversations

For Families and Friends

Hello is the surprisingly fun game about living and dying well. Great for small groups.

For Communities, Groups, and Classes

Conversation Event Kits, based on our updated game “Hello,” are the easiest way to get people talking about serious illness and end of life issues.

For Patients & Providers

The Conversation System is the easy-to-use, adaptable system that equips your staff to start patient-centered conversations.

National Healthcare Decisions Day is coming!

This year, use our Conversation Event Kits to get your community talking and taking action. Pre-register now to get a discount and join the movement for great conversations.
