Dying Matters Week Activities

Dying Matters 2019

Are We Ready?

That's the theme of Dying Matters Week this year which will run from 13 - 19 May 2019. 

It’s a question that challenges each of us on several levels. This is a practical question – wills, funeral planning and more – but of course it’s also emotional, and deeply spiritual for some of us.

A YouGov survey of over 2,000 UK adults revealed 3 in 5 (62%) people have not spoken with their family or friends about their wishes in relation to their death.

Among those who have not made any plans or are unlikely to do so in the near future, 2 in 5 (40%) said it was not something they felt they needed to worry about yet, and 1 in 7 (14%) said they had more important things to do.

Most people haven’t taken care of the practical aspects, which include planning for future care.

During Dying Matters Week, we have lined up many activities at the Hospice you can get involved in and understand more about the emotional and practical issues related to end of life care.

St Luke's Booth at St Ann's Shopping Centre

Our specialist clinical and support team will be at the shopping centre on Thursday, 16th May.

We will be located on the Ground Floor, next to the Boots store from 10 am to 4 pm.

So, feel free to share your concerns and discuss any queries you have. We would be happy to help you.

Planning for care

All through the week, we have interactive activities such as Memory Jars, Bucket Lists, Remembrances, and more, at the hospice.

There will also be special information displays and staff will be ready to help you with your concerns and provide information that you need regarding end of life care for you or your loved ones.

So, feel free to drop in.
