People usually want to do the right thing when someone they know is caring, dying or grieving. But often they can feel awkward offering help or worry about making things worse.
People often have questions about serious illness or death. But often they don’t know who to ask. Making plans when your healthy means there is less to think about when you’re ill. But often people put off making plans until it is too late.
Demystifying death week is about giving people knowledge, skills and opportunities to plan and support each other through death, dying, loss and care.
The Café, which is open to anyone in the Dundee area, will involve an informal and relaxed chat, a chance to connect with others and to be part of an important conversation about death, dying, loss and care.
The Cafe will be held using the video call platform Zoom. Discussions will be held in zoom breakout rooms. When you register for the event you will be sent a welcome pack and a guide to using zoom by email at least 24 hours before the event, (please keep an eye on your junk or spam folder). The event will last for approximately 90 minutes.
Say Something Dundee is an exciting new partnership project between Funeral Link, Dundee Volunteer and Voluntary Action, University of Dundee and Marie Curie. We were awarded support from Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief to come together as part of The Truacanta Project looking to create compassionate communities.
Our aim is to make conversations around death, dying, loss and care easier to initiate through campaigns, workshops and discussions.
