Coping with bereavement on anniversaries and special occasions
Let's talk about dying

Talking about death doesn't bring death closer. It's about planning for life and helping us make the most of the time we have.

Talking about dying with people affected by dementia

Providing end of life care for people with dementia is a key part of good quality care, but many people put things off until its  too late, often missing opportunities that could lead to an improved quality of life.

Talking about dying with children

We can't protect children from death. They encounter it all the time - whether its a mouse brought in by a cat or a grandparent dying. We need to talk to children about dying so myths don't take over and so they don't feel isolated or guilty about what they think.

Supporting bereavement

It can be difficult to know what to do or say to someone you know has lost someone close. People who have lost a loved one need lots of support - even if it doesn't look that way.
