Everybody dies, sometimes it is expected and other times not, but by preparing for your death in advance you are able to experience a peaceful end of life and relieve the decision-making burden on your family by allowing them to calmly execute your wishes.
AgeUK have produced a booklet, Thinking about end of life, covering the practical considerations and support for someone to consider when planning ahead and getting their affairs in order. They have also have an illustrated booklet, Let’s talk about death and dying, which aims to encourage people to have those difficult conversations with their loved ones about topics they might otherwise avoid.
