We have 5 downloadable leaflets available including:
Things to do before you die: How to get started with thinking about what you want at the end of life, and starting to plan.
Supporting bereavement: It can be hard to know what to say or do when supporting someone who is bereaved. This leaflet is full of useful tips on how to help yourself and others in this difficult situation.
Let’s talk about dying: Talking about dying doesn’t make it happen, but it still feels taboo. This leaflet will help break those barriers and get you talking about the inevitable.
Talking about dying with people affected by dementia: Talking about dying isn’t always easy, but it can be more difficult if you are supporting someone with dementia. This leaflet is designed to support you through those conversations and get you talking and planning
earlier with the ones you love.
Talking about dying with children: We can’t protect children from death. This leaflet will help you talk to children to alleviate any fears or
misunderstandings they may have about death and dying.
What to expect when someone important to you is dying: If you are caring for someone who is in the last stages of life, or who may be soon, this information is for you. It is designed to help prepare you for what to expect in the very last days and hours of a person’s life.
