Event description
A Matter of Life and Death. A day to talk more openly about dying, death and bereavement. All welcome.

About this Event

Talking about dying makes it more likely that you, or your loved one, will have a ‘good death’ – to die as you might wish. We don’t have to be very old or ill or morbid to start. It does not bring death any nearer but a lot of people say that thinking about what they want for themselves, and for their loved ones, can be valuable and rewarding.

This free conference aims to help us see dying as something we can plan for and manage rather than something to fear and avoid discussing.

Here is the programme for the day:

    10.00am Arrival, opportunity to browse marketplace of informative stalls
    11.00am ‘Can we talk about death?’ – facilitated discussion groups for all to share
    12.00pm Keynote speaker Dr Lynn Bassett - ‘Making those difficult conversations just a little easier’
    1.00pm Lunch
    2.00pm Workshops – first round. C hoose one of he following:
  1.  Palliative Care – Medical Mythbusting
  2.  Putting Affairs in Order – Financial and Legal

  4.  Supporting Carers
  5.  Having the conversation – visiting and pastoral care
    3.00pm Workshops -second round (Choose one more topic from above)

    Please join us to explore how knowing that our time is limited can be an invitation to seize each day and live every moment as fully as possible. We very much hope you will join the conversation.
