Deborah Kimmett takes a humorous look at how we talk to sick people – what we do wrong and what we could do better.
Do sick people make you uncomfortable? Do you have a difficult time knowing what to say? Do you have a hard time shutting up and just listening?
If you feel like you always put your foot in your mouth with someone who is sick Second City comic Deborah Kimmett has created a wonderful Dvd that teaches you how to stop offering advice, listen intuitively and connect in a more human heart felt way.

A humorous and compassionate guide for Personal or Professional Caregivers. A must for Sick People “to show’ their caregivers. This is an informative, compassionate and humorous look at palliative care – one that I found very helpful when faced with one of my own family member’s terminal illness. I encourage everyone who every wondered “what am I supposed to say” to buy this video.
Producer, CBC Radio great video – see it on www.timelesswoman.ca
Diana Boyes When I interviewed Deborah for Timeless Woman of the Month, she made me aware of how important this video is to her. Everyone, watch the trailer and then buy the video! You wonâ€™t make a better purchase this year! Brava Deborah!
‘Tell Deb from one sickee to another, that she nailed it. Wonderful, I am going to share it with my care team of well intentioned givers.(aka talkers afraid of death wonders)
“This was very funny. I think it will help the caregiver. I knew a volunteer at hospice who acted like this and the tips at the end are laid out to people remember them.”
Shirley W from Kingston “Your depiction of the “healthy and the helpful” is spot on. Good advice all around.”
“Deborah is as professional as she is funny. Her creative approach to serious topics makes her an engaging speaker, video host, and presenter. It was a pleasure to work with her on the Talking to Sick People project, creating a product that is both enlightening and inspiring!”
