We are proud to be working with Blackpool Teaching Hospitals to deliver Our Compassionate Fylde Coast Communities – a series of workshops which will empower community leaders across the Fylde coast to hold important conversations about death and dying with confidence.
These workshops will provide you with the correct skills, knowledge and confidence to guide important conversations about planning for death, dealing with death and coping through bereavement.
Ultimately, they will help our community to be as supported as possible when it comes to planning for the final days, and beyond.
Each standalone three-hour session will support people without clinical qualifications to help look after their loved ones, be they friends or family, at home.
The session will answer many of the questions and concerns patients and families frequently ask, including:
- Planning for the future
- How to care and accompany someone with a life shortening condition
- Saying goodbye
- Recognising the signs of dying
- Negotiating the ‘new normal’ after someone has died.
Our programme is led by someone who has undergone specific training to discuss these topics. The programme is delivered in a face-to-face environment.
