Why is it that we are so reluctant to talk about death and dying? The taboo, the fear, is almost palpable with some people, and it’s not healthy. Research has consistently shown that 100% of people die at some time in their lives, usually at the end and, as someone once commented, the only inevitable things in life are birth, death and taxes.
Dying to Know is a series of panel discussions that will bring together specialists in their field, to give you practical information and advice, and to answer your questions. It’s a huge subject – the proverbial elephant in the room – and so we are going to break the elephant down into bite-size chunks so it’s easier to work our way through. We’ll cover everything from legal and financial planning to end-of-life care; from alternative funerals to following the paper trail; from what happens when a body dies to the process of grieving – and much, much more!
There is an initial pop-in meet-up at the Café at Chequer Mead Arts Centre, East Grinstead, on Friday 12th February, 10.30am – 12 noon. Come along, meet me – Judy Sharp – and share your stories, concerns and questions, so that I can shape the upcoming debates to be as relevant as they can be.
I look forward to seeing you there! If you’d like any more information, feel free to give me a call on 01444 459 433 or 07597 020 512,
