A free seminar organised by Compassion in Dying:
My Life, My Decision was an ambitious, multifaceted programme of work delivered by Compassion in Dying and its partners, and funded by the Big Lottery’s Silver Dreams Fund to run from July 2014 until October 2016.
Its aim was to support people aged over 50 to think about and plan their care in advance, helping to ensure they have the death that is right for them.
The project tried and tested new ways of engaging people and communities in planning for the end of life. It developed a service that placed the individual at the centre of their care decisions and supported them to express and record their wishes in a legally binding way. It also developed effective models of partnership working between health services and voluntary organisations, maximising the capacity of healthcare professionals by providing support to their patients to plan their care.
