Supporting Dying Matters

The way we talk about Dying Matters

Having open conversations about death and dying are an essential part of ensuring good end of life care but unfortunately there are many taboos around discussing death and confusion around who should be having these conversations.

Many patients, carers and families do not understand what is happening or receive the support they need during these difficult times, which is why for St. Rocco’s, helping the Warrington Community to come together and talk about end of life, whether it be with someone close to them or a healthcare professional is extremely important because the way we talk about dying matters. 

There are a range of resources available below from Hospice UK including guidance and advice on how to start these difficult conversations.  

Dying Matters Awareness Week (6th-12th May 2024) aims to raise awareness and during this week there a range of events taking place, which you can get involved in.
