Resources for those who are dying

This page is dedicated to those who are facing death and dying, directly. People and patients whose lives are ending and who must navigate this winding road alone. 

We cannot know what this must be like. As spectators, we can only hope to cheer you on and support you towards a win in a race that is well run. We do this in humility until it becomes our turn to run our own race, with the hope that we too will be cheered on and supported. 

These resources are our starting suggestions to help patients on this unplanned journey.  We hope they provide good advice and comfort and where possible an invitation for you to get on with living.

It is not uncommon to feel that things are too much and that it is easier just to give up. However, we encourage you not to. As a patient, your help is invaluable and your experiences can help others in their own journey. 

We do not know what it is like to be on your journey. By sharing your stories, insights, frustrations, hot tips and life lessons with us, we can learn and apply these to our own lives.  Additionally, the more you tell us about what is going on, the more we may be able to offer solutions to make the ride less bumpy. 

Please join in on our community or simply contact us and tell us how things are going, we would love to hear from you!
