Make a will and plan your future care and support

Dying Matters Awareness Week (May 14-20, 2018) is the ideal opportunity to talk openly with those closest to you about your wishes about their future care, dying, death and bereavement.

We at McGale and Kelly are supporting the efforts to encourage the public to talk to each other about dying, death and bereavement and most of all planning for the future.

Many of us have specific wishes about how and where we would like to die and what we would like to happen after our death. However, we sometimes don’t like to talk about our wishes and thoughts about death and dying, perhaps due to fear of the subject or concern that we may upset our family or friends.

The reality is, however, that if we don’t have these types of conversations it can mean that people’s wishes go unfulfilled and families may struggle to make decisions.

Some simple steps that you can take to make your end of life experience better, both for yourself and for your loved ones, are:
Make a will; Record your funeral wishes; Plan your future care and support; Tell your loved ones your wishes.

Talking about dying, death and bereavement is in everyone’s interests as it can help ensure that all of us can get the care and support we want, and where we want it, at the end of our lives.

Even just having a chat with family, friends or colleagues about the importance of preparing for death can change perceptions. Through being more confident in talking about dying and taking small actions to plan for the future and support each other, together we can make a big difference. Talking about death does not bring it any closer. It is about planning for life.
