Event description

Description

We all need to talk about Death, for aside from birth, dying is the only other experience we will all share. So why is it so hard to talk about it?

Creating Conversations in Croydon will be hosting a Community dialogue forum, to include participants from different cultures and Faiths, as well as professionals within the end of life community that serve the population of Croydon.

The aim of creating this unique opportunity is to exchange information and hear different perspectives around Death and Dying, to understand and clarify end of life rituals and how these vary between different faith groups, to explore what is a good death including fundamental preferences of where to spend ones final days, what professional support is available and to appreciate that care of the dying is changing and care and support comes in many guises including our communities.

This is an invitation to all residents of Croydon and End of Life Practitioners to join in this dialogue.

Come and share your thoughts and any first hand experience supporting a family member or friend through the Dying process, what was good about the experience.

Did your family member /friend receive the support they wished for? What could be improved?

Did you identify and gaps in the service?
