This week, 9-15 May, is Dying Matters Awareness Week. Established by the Dying Matters Coalition, which includes NHS organisations, hospices, cares homes, faith organisations and more, the aim of the Week is to help people talk more openly about dying, death and bereavement, and to make plans for the end of life.
The Dying Matters Coalition is working to address this by encouraging people to talk about their wishes towards the end of their lives, including where they want to die and their funeral plans with friends, family and loved ones.
