We may find we are able to think about what we want to happen after our own death but it can often be more difficult to talk about this with those we love. Or we may wonder how we can possibly open up a conversation with someone who is nearing the end of their lives and we want to be able to care for them appropriately after their death.
The Dying Matters website has lots of information, accounts from families who have been in this situation including a short video and leaflets that you can download.
The Dying Matters coalition has thousands of members and is encouraging people to talk about their wishes towards the end of their lives. Bereavement Advice Centre has joined the coalition.
