Aside from birth, dying is the only other experience we will all share. So why is it so hard to talk about it? And, why is it so important that we should?
The more we talk about a subject the less it becomes fearful. Talking to those we love about death and dying also helps us to prepare, plan and ensure our friends and families know our choices and preferences. Sometimes just having access to the right information can be comforting as it gives us back a certain degree of control.
The aim of this session to get you to think about the key things you should be thinking about and talking about with your loved ones, including:
- how to bulletproof your financial affairs - wills and lasting power of attorney
- dispelling the myths about dying and palliative care
- celebrating life - meaningful alternative ways to remember and celebrate our loved ones
There will also be a session about accessing the help you need at work using the bereavement toolkit compiled by colleagues who took part in the Future Leaders Academy 2019.
Now more than ever we can benefit from talking openly about what is important to us and those we love. So we can hope for the best but plan for the worst.
