Building Compassionate Care Communities for End of Life
Much of the western world needs to become more comfortable speaking about death, dying and how to practically support loved ones and others in the community. Only by improving our death, grief and mourning literacy can we hope to get excellent care and be of helpful support for those actively dying and those left behind.
We all need to make known our end-of-life wants and values. The number of people dying is increasing dramatically for numerous reasons, including many of the baby-boomers now making their exit.
We must develop family, volunteer and community care as hospices and hospitals cannot cope with the demand. Those dying in such places only receive around 5% of their time with health professionals.
I have written many articles on death, dying, mourning, grieving.
