Dying Matters Awareness Week, running from 10 – 16 May, is a chance for
individuals and organisations to open up the conversation around dying, death
and bereavement. This year focuses on the importance of being in a good place
to die. There is no right or wrong place to die; it will be different for everyone.
But the pandemic has proven that it is more important than ever for people to
think about it, talk about it and plan for it. (Dying Matters 2021)

Where people die is changing. More and more people have been dying at home
in recent years. And the pandemic has seen this number leap by tens of
thousands. We have very little evidence about the quality of these deaths, and
whether the right care and support was in place. The quality of care for some
people at the end of their life is still not good enough. There is no right or wrong
place to die; it will be different for everyone. But it is important for families to
think about it, to talk about it and to plan for it. We want people of all ages to
be in a good place when they die – physically, emotionally and with the right
care in place. Getting there means having some important conversations, and
taking some careful decisions. Make sure that you and your loved ones are in a
good place to die - join the Dying Matters movement.
