Dying Matters Flier

“Being there for someone at the end of life”

We all find conversations about death and dying difficult – and the prospect of visiting someone nearing the end of their life daunting. Some of us may find ourselves caring for someone through a terminal illness.

As part of ‘Dying Matters* Awareness Week 2015’ we are hosting a free training session to help people feel more confident about offering practical, emotional and spiritual support to someone nearing the end of their life and/or their families.

The evening will take the form of a facilitated discussion with panelists who have professional experience in palliative care. Speakers include:

  • Rev Dr Andrew Goodhead, Spiritual Care LEad, St Christopher’s Hospice
  • Louise Chatham, Carer Support Coordinator, Hospice in the Weald
  • Dr Anjali Melethil, GP, Amherst Medical Practice
  • Jonathan Hall, Acting Senior Chaplain at Burrswood Christian Hospital, Kent

Anyone with an interest in learning more about care at the end of life is welcome to attend, whether that be from a pastoral visiting perspective, or for personal interest. We welcome anyone from any local church to join us, and those from the wider community too.
