In 2017, Dying Matters Awareness Week runs from Monday 8 May until Sunday 14 May.
Dying Matters is made up of 32,000 members across England and Wales who aim to help people talk more openly about dying, death and bereavement, and to make plans for the end of life.
Exemplar’s Dearnevale home in Barnsley has been chosen to hold Dying Matters ‘Let’s Talk About It’ workshops with the local End of Life community team. Staff at Dearnvale are hosting a café and chat session in the home to have sensitive discussions with fellow staff, service users and families.
Dying Matters Awareness Week is not just about planning for death – it’s also about celebrating life, and taking the time to appreciate and make the most ofthe life we have.
Visit the Dying Matters website for more information, resources and support around end of life care and planning.
