The aim of the Time to Talk workshop is to give people the confidence to have conversations about the end of life, last wishes and what might happen if you became ill.
We aim to tailor each workshop to the needs of the participants, but we generally explore:
People who have attended our workshops tell us that hearing the experiences and perspectives of other participants was one of the things they found most useful.
We aim to make everyone feel comfortable joining in the group conversations, so that we can listen and learn from each other’s experiences.
By taking part, we hope you will feel better equipped to cope when faced with end of life situations, and have fewer regrets.
Thank you for delivering your fantastic workshop. It’s so important to start the conversation about death and dying. It is possible to have a good death and so important for loved ones.
When my mother died recently, I remembered what I had learnt at your workshop about making the dying person more comfortable. I had the confidence to take in her favourite scent and played her favourite music, filling the hospital room with comfort and love
Our staff were a bit apprehensive about a workshop talking about death and dying. But afterwards they couldn’t praise it enough and felt privileged to be part of such a powerful and informative experience.
It has helped us enhance the way we support people nearing the end of their life, equipping staff to advise and empower family/friends of the dying person to make their wishes heard and, where possible, fulfilled.
I would recommend all health professionals experience the Time to Talk workshop.
