Additional Resources – AARP, Helping Seniors Keep Pets (Coppell)
AARP is the nation’s largest nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to empowering Americans 50 and older to choose how they live as they age.

Conversation Ready NTX is a grass roots initiative to not only encourage people to have the conversation but also have their wishes respected. We want to help de-stigmatize the topic of end-of-life planning. We want to help empower people to think about how they want to live at the end of their life. We want to help family members and health care proxies understand how important it is to discuss what their loved ones would want at the end of their life. We want to help make North Texas “Conversation Ready”.
