About this Death Cafe
At a Death Cafe we talk about all things Death and Dying and this includes how we want our funeral to be. Sometimes Funeral Directors are seen as formal and people to be avoided unless absoloutely necessary! That's why Walter H Squires & Son and Living Well Dying Well are co-hosting this Death Cafe - to open up the conversation around Death; fears, hopes,wishes and choices for End of Life and afterwards.
To reserve your place please send an email to email@example.com or if you'd prefer to call you can contact Aly on 07887 840663
About Sabina Rhodes with Aly Dickinson
Sabina Rhodes is a Funeral Director with Walter H Squires & Sons. Sabina believes that as humans we plan and celebrate for all the big events in life, births, marriages and graduations, to name just a few, It’s what we do. But when it comes to death (the only thing you can guarantee in life) we still choose to pretend it’s either not going to happen or we’re are happy to leave all of those decisions with our family or those we are close to. When someone dies, there is enough for them to be taking care of without having to worry about what hymns you liked (if any!), or if you would like Abba or Pink Floyd as we enter the crematorium? You loved nature and the outdoors, why have a plain veneer coffin when you may have preferred a natural Water Hyacinth, Willow or a Banana leaf coffin?........ As Funeral Director’s we believe people should think about their death so they are able to have their wishes enacted at the end.
Aly Dickinson is an End of Life Doula and trained with Living Well Dying Well. She is a supporter and companion who walks alongside people with a life limiting illlness, their families and those important to them. As a Doula she's a consistent flexible presence able to fill the gaps and take on various roles in support - practically, emotionally and if desired spiritually.
Aly is delighted to be with Sabina at this first Death Cafe in Exwick and says 'Sabina is a compassionate and warm she supports the bereaved in a wholly person centred way'.
And the icing on the cake is that there is free tea, coffe and cake! We'd love you to join us.
