Charter on Death, Dying and Bereavement
Help us create an Irish charter on death, dying and bereavement in Ireland 2016
At the Irish Hospice Foundation, we believe achieving excellence in end-of-life care is about supporting each person to live as well as possible to the end of their life so they can die with dignity and humanity and so those left behind can grieve well.
Remembering, reflecting and reimagining, your life, your death, your say
Through 2016, we have been remembering Ireland’s achievements over the past 100 years.
Now we are asking you, in the spirit of the national declaration to ‘remember, reflect and re-imagine’, to remember and reflect on your experiences of death and bereavement and re-imagine what it make take to facilitate a good death.
We want to find out what Irish people think is required for a good death and grieving. We want you to have your say; your life, your death, your say.
Why do we want your opinion?
For us all there will come a time when we will need care through illness, at the end of life and in bereavement. It’s important to understand how people look at death and dying so we can make sure correct supports are in place. Only you can tell us this. Based on your experiences, knowledge, hopes and fears.
