Online Death Cafe Cymru 14 September 2021 Report
This, our first Death Café, went very well. Topics that arose included: the significance of pets in our lives; how to reach people who don’t want to talk about death; advanced care planning, living wills and enabling difficult conversations; the law on assisted dying in the UK in the light of the BMA’s recent vote not to oppose change; palliative care; juggling the sometimes diverse wishes of family members in funeral planning.
Feedback was positive and included the following comments: refreshing to talk about death; interesting to listen to others and discover commonalities while respecting their otherness; online experience is okay; fascinating in terms of breadth of questions and topics; would be good to encourage a broader group of people with diverse opinions, experiences and attitudes, including but also beyond Wales. We look forward to the next one.
Hello Sara, I hope to start Death Cafe in Haifa in Israel coming November. Wonderful to hear that you had a first succesful meeting!
