Dying matters: Hospice answers your questions

by Editor

Ask the questions you’ve always wanted to about death, dying and difficult conversations at an event being held by Wigan and Leigh Hospice.

The Hospice is hosting ‘Plan for tomorrow: live for today’ at their Oak Centre in Hindley on Tuesday, 3 May, 2022 during Dying Matters Awareness Week (May 2 – 6).

Dying Matters Week is a national campaign to get people talking about death, dying and grief. This year the focus is on being in a good place when you die.

Debbie Jones, Manager of the Practice Development team at the hospice, said: “Conversations about death and dying can be hard but we know there are people out there who need to think about this – and want to talk about it. For those people living with long-term conditions and their carers this event will help them to plan for future care and they’ll learn how they can ensure that their wishes and preferences for end of life are heard and respected.

“It will be an informal, friendly event so please do pop in and see us.”

Plan for tomorrow: live for today takes place at the Oak Centre, Wigan and Leigh Hospice, Kildare Street, Hindley from 10am until 12noon. Booking is not necessary. Free parking is available.

On May 5 from 10am – 12noon the Practice Development team will also be at Wigan and Leigh Carers Centre on Frederick Street in Hindley running a session aimed at carers on the same theme. More information is available from the Carers Centre.
