Dying to Know Day is an annual Australian day of action dedicated to bringing to life conversations and community actions around death, dying and bereavement.
- develop their death literacy
- make their end of life plans such as a will and advance care plan
- share these wishes with their families
- get informed about end of life and death care options such as dying at home, home and community led funerals and natural burial
- be better equipped to support family and friends experiencing death, dying and bereavement.
A Kiama meeting has been organised to help our community address these issues. It will open with brief presentations by local speakers on:
- caring for dementia
- palliative care
- advance care plans
- wills, enduring guardianship and power of attorney.
