Why We Are Needed
Most of us hope that when our time comes, we’ll die peacefully in our own bed.
But almost half of us will die in a busy hospital, surrounded by strangers.
Too many people die alone, and the Covid-19 pandemic is making things worse. More people are dying, and more families are unable to be with their loved ones as they die.
There is a desperate need for support for those who are dying and those who love them, who may feel frightened, isolated and have no one to turn to.
There’s also a huge need for better conversations about death, before we come to the end.
