I’ve just been in London speaking at Living Well Dying Well’s conference. What a great event.
It’s inspiring to get together with like-minded folk and share what’s happening. There’s a swell, a movement afoot that might help us get back some of the skills in our communities that we used to have so that we’ll be better able to live and die well.
We need to talk about death. And if the largest circulation and most conservative daily newspaper – The Telegraph – is talking about it, we think this is a good day.
Anyone for tea and sympathy? The Observer asks the question and highlights the work of Death Cafes, Final Fling, the rise of death doulas and the Ideal Death Show – all working to embrace death and dying – the last taboo.
There’s lots of help out there if you want to improve your skills to be better able to support someone else at the end of their life
