Dying Matters

Every year in May, Dying Matters host an Awareness Week, which gives an unparalleled opportunity to place the importance of talking about dying, death and bereavement firmly on the national agenda. This year the Awareness Week will run from 11th to 17th May and the theme will be “Dying to be Heard”. This theme therefore puts the focus on how to help by listening… How many people want to talk about death, but feel they have no one to talk to about it?

As a Soul Midwife and retired palliative care nurse, I will be looking at specific ways of holding events and being available for people to talk about death, dying and grief during Awareness Week and will advertise these nearer the time.

There are lots of resources and excellent information available on the Dying Matters website. Take a look, and if you wish to discuss anything with me, I’m very happy to do so.

The Departure Lounge

I am so pleased to have been involved in this innovative project, called the Departure Lounge.

The Academy of Medical Sciences undertook this project to look at peoples views on death and dying, and to provide information to the public on resources available to them at the end of life.

The soul midwives support network

Now maybe more than ever, support is needed for people facing the end of their lives, and for the family and friends caring for them.

The Soul Midwives Support Network is offering this support and anyone needing support is welcome to contact the School of Soul Midwives as highlighted here.
