Dying Matters Webinar

The importance of being in a good place to die’.

We are delighted to inform you about our exciting Dying Matters webinar ‘The importance of being in a good place to die’.  Dying Matters Week 2021 encourages everyone to think ahead to a time when you will need to make key decisions for yourself or for others. To talk about dying can bring up uncomfortable thoughts and feelings, as a result we often avoid the conversation.  Yet by planning your future care, your funeral and so on increases the chance that your choices are carried out.  Importantly, plans will help your family with difficult decisions at a time of personal crisis.

What to expect

In partnership with The Northern Health Trust, along with other partners, we are hosting a webinar, for everyone to join on Wednesday 12 May, 10.00am to 12.30pm. Attendees will be invited to think about how they can help themselves, their families and communities to be in a good place to die – physically, emotionally, spiritually, financially, digitally and with the right care in place.

We have secured a range of diverse speakers and for the first time are delighted to welcome Dr Elaine Kasket, a Counselling Psychologist and Professor of Psychology at the University of Wolverhampton.  Author of ‘All the Ghosts in the Machine: The Digital Afterlife of Your Personal Data’ (2020), Elaine will focus on an interesting aspect of what happens to a person’s digital data life after their death.”

Listen to a preview of digital afterlife presentation by Dr Elaine Kasket.
