Dying Matters Week 2021

Dying Matters Week 2021

There is no right or wrong place to die; it will be different for everyone. But it is important for families to think about
it, to talk about it and to plan for it. Planning for death is more important than ever in a time when the COVID-19
pandemic has taken so many lives at such short notice, and in circumstances that are beyond our control.

We want people of all ages to be in a good place when they die – physically, emotionally and with the right care in place.
Getting there means having some important conversations, and taking some careful decisions.

Make sure that you and your loved ones are in a good place to die.

Willow Burn Family Support & Bereavement Service

Our Family Support Team provides a range of services to anyone suffering from life limiting illness, their families and carers. Support is provided from diagnosis, pre-death, post-death and is ongoing throughout the bereavement process. This support is offered not only to our in-patients in the Helen McArdle Wing and day care clients, but we also accept referrals from hospitals, GPs and Macmillan Cancer Care.
