On Monday 18th January Paul Yarwood, Secure Haven CEO attended the Dying Matters Launch Event – #The Big Conversation.
This was his first visit to one of their events and he found it hugely informative listening to some inspirational speakers and attendees.
There were many issues raised and discussed but it was so pleasant to hear from people highlighting that there really isn’t a “one size fits all” policy to dying and bereavement and that we should “be prepared not scared”.
One area of discussion that Paul found particularly interesting and informative was the need to understand the process of dying and to talk to families about advance care, future planning and the options available when that time comes. Information on all these questions and much more can be found on their website www.dyingmatters.org.
