Thinking about end of life information guide

Thinking about life ending can be difficult – many of us tend to not think about it until we have to. But it’s a good idea to give yourself time to think and talk through all of your options. Planning ahead can make you feel more in control and gives yourself and your loved ones peace of mind that your wishes are known. Our guide can help you to prepare.

This guide offers practical and emotional guidance that can help you when preparing to make decisions about the end of your life. It includes:

  • how to start conversations with family and friends
  • making a will
  • planning your funeral
  • writing an advance statement of wishes
  • definitions of key terms that come up often.

The guide also lists useful organisations that you can contact for further support and guidance in thinking through your options.
