In conjunction with Dying Matters Awareness Week which runs from the 10th – 16th May 2021 I invite you to an open, honest and loving conversation about what being in a “Good place to die” means to you.
I’m Nancy, an End of Life Doula based in Yorkshire, UK and seeing how unprepared people are I feel it’s vital that we find ways to get the conversation started.
Along with Dying Matters our aim is to raise the profile of the care that does exist and the benefit that it gives to dying people and their families.
And we want to raise our voices to highlight what needs to change for people at the end of life.
“Where people die is changing. More people than ever are dying at home, and the pandemic has accelerated this trend. In 2020, 28% of people in the UK died at home.
With gaps in support structures for people when they die, and for those that are left behind, people are dying without being in the right place. Often, people don’t feel prepared and they haven’t fulfilled their wishes or communicated them to loved ones.”
This event will begin with a short presentation from me and I will then create a space for you to talk about what being in a good place to die means to you – physically, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually and what you can do now to prepare for that.
This event will take place on Zoom with 2 dates Tuesday 11th May 2021 7-8.30pm or Saturday 15th May 2021 10.30 am – 12 noon (I may add more if there is sufficient interest).
Make yourself a cuppa and come and join in this informal and life-affirming discussion.
