Event name: Dying to Know Day - Silver Rainbow

Date: 8/08/2018

Event time: 10am - 4pm

Event details: Silver Rainbow is hosting a Dying to Know Day event specifically for the older LGBTI community and their family. This event is completely free, with lunch and snacks provided. The day will be facilitated by Helen Callanan from End of life Doulas-Preparing the Way & Dr Annetta Mallon - Your End of Life Doula.

Talking about death & dying is a surprisingly positive and enriching experience! It's not what most people would picture.

We want to help people take more control and action on end of life planning and end of life care. Often conversations about death and dying are left a little late in life, talking about it now can help enrich our end of life experience and understand fully all the options available to us. This may include dying at home rather than hospital or having community led funerals.

Community services workers and family or friends who are supporting older LGBTI people are very warmly welcome to join us.
