We provide Hospice care & support to patients and their loved ones living in Kent and East Sussex. Discover how we can help you.
It’s never too early to talk about death. It is something that will affect us all, whether we like it or not. We all could benefit from talking about death and dying more, and it’s never too early to start. We plan for births and weddings extremely thoroughly, but death often gets overlooked. We’re holding a pop-up to give you the opportunity to explore conversations and activities around death and dying. There’s something for everyone no matter how young or old you feel.
Please come and visit us at our Pop-Up venue (where Smiffy used to be), Royal Victoria Place, Tunbridge Wells next to the Taste Wells café, Upper Mall, on Friday 11th August between 9.30am and 5:00pm to find out more.
It’s something we often avoid talking about, but we know that speaking openly about death and dying has a positive impact on people, reducing anxieties and enabling a better experience around death.
These conversations help to normalise something that will inevitably happen to all of us. We will all have to face death at some point.
We’re hosting a pop-up shop inviting you and others to explore death and dying in a safe space with support and advice from Hospice in the Weald. This is a place to consider and talk about death and dying, learn new skills and knowledge and hopefully have more awareness to make informed choices for ourselves and family and friends about end-of-life matters.
We use different activities to help people talk about their experiences, thoughts and ideas, and this can then help to give people the confidence to share conversations with their loved ones.
From arts and crafts to games and puzzles, there are so many ways to start the conversation. Once you get started everything else becomes a little easier. From talking about what’s important to you, your fears and anxieties, to where you want to die and what you would like at your funeral.
We would like to hear about your own experiences and to use you to explore some different ideas about what might get people thinking and talking.
It’s never too early to talk to our loved ones and to think about and plan ahead to make informed choices about end-of-life decisions. We plan for births and weddings extremely thoroughly, but death often gets overlooked.
‘Death literacy’ is about the skills, knowledge and awareness that help us access and understand information about end-of-life care options, and this allows us all to make informed choices about what we want or importantly, what we don’t want at end of life.
We understand how difficult it can be to talk about death, dying and loss. This campaign explores three important topics to help you and your loved ones talk about death.
