Dying To Know Day August 8th
Monday, 23rd July 2018
Dying to Know Day (D2KD) is an annual day aimed at raising awareness about end-of-life-care and empower people to have, what is too often perceived to be, the difficult Death and Dying conversations with loved ones, friends and Health Care providers.
Currently only 1 in 4 of us has had these conversations and less than 10% of Australians have End- of- Life plans or Advanced Care Plans. As a result the majority of us may not have the kind of end-of-life care that we would have wished for.
You are invited to the Uniting Church Hall, 85 Hesse St, Queenscliff on Wednesday 8th 2.00 – 4.00 pm for afternoon tea and a facilitated discussion about death and dying.
Bellarine Community Health is sponsoring the event which will be facilitated by Dr Andrea Grindrod. Andrea is the Heath Promotion Officer at the Palliative Care Unit at Latrobe University.
Come along and bring a friend or two and get the answers to those questions about Death and Dying that you always wanted to know but were never game to ask.
RSVP (for catering) to Bridget on 5251 4661 or firstname.lastname@example.org
