The Baby Boomer Generation is ageing out, let’s make no mistake about that, it is a clear and present fact. This transition is significant in both its size and in the opportunities it is affording us. The demands this phenomenon will place on our systems of care will be triple what it can handle and most of us will have to die in the family home. The old adage ‘It takes a village to raise a child’ is also very true for end of life. It will take a village to die well as the demand for care services will outstrip our current institutional capacity to help out. We will need to think out of the box in order to support the families, neighborhoods and communities that will be facing a wave of death never seen before.
This weekend’s training, It Takes A Village to Die Well, offers the basic training that we will all need to be better prepared for death in the home. At the end of the weekend participants will have a better understanding of what a home death entails, how to prepare the family home and the planning necessary to make it all happen. Learners will also learn what death looks like and what they can expect to see and hear as their loved one is actively dying.
We will also explore how we can approach death differently letting go of the age-old image of the Grim Reaper turn fear and denial into acceptance and embrace.
Come and join us for an exceptional weekend of learning how to bring death back to community life and make our neighbourhoods death friendly.
Workshop is limited to 24 people.
Pre-registration is recommended.
