A conversation with Cathy Thorpe, CEO of Nurse Next Door

How To Care Episode 2: Talking About Death

We all die, but we don’t want to think about it. But why not? We would all like our final chapter to be just as wonderful as any other part of our life, and working out how to do that begins with talking about death. Nurse Next Door’s CEO, Cathy Thorpe, recently lost her husband, Harry, and as devastating as that was she has also learned a lot about herself, and about what Happier Aging looks like until the very end. She talks about the two-year journey from his diagnosis to his death, how we can all approach death in a healthier and happier way, and shares tips and guidance in how to have the conversation about death. Everyone will be there eventually, so we need to prepare for those difficult conversations.
