Death Cafe, Elephant & Castle write up
Five people attended the joint Lambeth Independent Living and Carers' Partnership and Healthwatch Lambeth second death cafe.
This was a daytime session which attracted more older people and carers than our first, evening session.
The cafe was described as: Enlightening; Friendly; inspiring; Understanding; Free; Open; Relaxing; Positive and Life enhancing.
Topics covered included: advance care planning tools and the choices and rights we have around end of life care, the idea of a 'good death', and different religious perspectives on death.
Attendees were keen to see more death cafes held locally.
