Dying to Know Day brings to life conversations and community actions around death, dying and bereavement.
Central Queensland, Wide Bay, Sunshine Coast PHN’s Bundaberg-based palliative care project officer Linda Byrne says the DTKD website was a great resource regarding all things you might be Dying to Know but too afraid to ask.
“Too many of us are dying in a way not consistent with our values or wishes,” Linda said.
“Did you know, for example, you can die in the comfort of your own home and not a hospital in many cases?
“Too often we feel ill-equipped to support loved ones who are dying, caring or grieving.
“Dying to Know Day is designed to change this by activating conversations and curiosity.”
There will be a morning tea in Bundaberg to promote the conversation on Friday, 9 August at 10am at the Bundaberg Neighbourhood Centre, 111 Targo Street.
Dying to Know Day event will feature:
• A range of tools and multilingual resources
• Activities to start conversations and curiosity
• Details about local services and supports available
• Lucky door prizes
• Morning tea provided
“By encouraging death literacy and providing a space to talk about end of life plans, we can help people, families and communities to ‘do death better,” Linda said.
