Support and Education in End of Life Issues
helping you face your fears… and find your way
It’s OK to ask.
It’s important to talk about it.
Whether newly diagnosed with life-threatening illness, facing advancing illness or age, people think about dying.
Thought about dying can bring fear, often the result of misconceptions, misinformation or simply the lack of information.
We can help.
Whether for yourself or someone you care about, we can help replace fears with knowledge, preparation and a feeling of compassionate support.
We can help you start those difficult conversations with family, friends and your healthcare team.
We can help you ask the right questions to find the answers you need on which to base your healthcare decisions.
You are not alone.
We can help guide you through the maze.

Passages offer compassionate guidance in end of life issues through education, support and research.

We believe that each person approaches dying differently and we respect the beliefs, values and traditions of each person involved.
We believe that support and education must be available to everyon who seeks it, regardless of ability to pay.
