Death Cafe profile for Diane


Location: United Kingdom

About Diane:

my husband died in 2007 and I want to have a death cafe especially for clients with learning disabilities as they are not not catered for in this area.  Careers are most welcomed to come along also. 


What brings you to Death Cafe?

I have cerebral pasle and people didn't know how to handle the situation when my husband was dying so. Decided to start my own group to help disabled over a death of an loved one. 


What would you like your legacy to be?

To have helped disabled overcome the death of a loved one.

Come and have a cup of coffee while we talk about things connected with Death.

The first one that I had we didn't notice the time going.  The two hours passed so quickly!!

Come and see what the Death Cafe is all about, we have a lot of laughs there and memories of our loved ones

We also talk about our own death and what we want to happen to us, and the service that we want at the funeral.

Hope to see you there.

As I am staying at the Premire Inn, I thought that it might be a good idea to have a cafe there ...

There were 5 people there including myself.
 
There was a member of Havering end of life team from NHS.
 
We had a great number of laughs during our discussion, and I gave all the people there a copy of my story to read and take home.
 
We all had a cup of coffee in Costa Coffee and the two hours that we were there past REALLY QUICKLY we didn't really notice the time going.
 
We are going to have another one in December.
