The annual Dying to Know Day is a community initiative to help us all become more comfortable thinking and talking about issues and ideas around the end of life. It aims to improve Death Literacy. 'Death literacy' recognises the role that everyone has in end of life care and death care. Having knowledge helps us make informed decisions about care options, being able to act on that knowledge is empowering.
For example do you know:
· what an advance care plan is and how it is used?
· how to access palliative care in your area?
· about alternatives to traditional cremation/burial in your local area?
Join our skilful and sensitive facilitators in a relaxed, informal discussion where you can voice your ideas, fears, concerns, or share your experiences of loved ones’ death and dying. You are free to contribute or simply listen in, this is a safe space for strong feelings to arise, as everyone is welcome to bring their unique perspectives
Time: 1pm – 2.30pm
Date: 7th August
Facilitators: Julie Verley and Maureen Tan
