It's sometimes hard knowing where to start...
As part of Dying Matters Awareness Week 2017, we are asking: What can you do?
Dying Matters has created advice and guidance to give you a helping hand, if you're thinking of starting conversations about end-of-life care... whether you need to, or because you want to be prepared.
They suggest taking it one step at a time, as it can be overwhelming. So here's what they suggest you can you do...
For the people close to you:
For your friends:
For your community:
Dying Matters says: "This can seem a lot, so take it in steps. Many people start thinking about their funeral or making a will, and then do the rest. Once it's done, you don't have to worry about it.
"Don't be afraid of saying the wrong thing - 'I don't know what to say' is better than an awkward silence.
"These things mean a lot."
