Share your thoughts on our virtual chalkboard for Dying Matters Week 2022.

What does it mean to you to be in a good place to die?

To know that my children are safe and happy.


To be involved at every stage,, to have any questions answered and remove any fears..
For people to see me as a person and not be focused on me dying,
Maintain my dignity and allow me to have control and let me die at home.

All of the above St Richards Hospice did for my father, we are always grateful that he was supported to be in a good place to die physically and mentally.

To be happy and know that I am not in pain anymore and that my relatives will be loved and supported


To have no regrets and to be kept comfortable, knowing that this will be a comfort to my family.


To know that my family and friends will be looked after when I’m gone


To know everyone you love and care for knows how much you love and care ❤


That neither I nor my family are frightened when that last breath is taken


To know that I have everything in place, have shared my wishes with my loved ones and my loved ones are supported.


To be happy, comfortable and not fighting with anyone or anything


To make sure I have the right care in place at the end of my life.


To know that my loved ones will be supported after I’m gone.


To have written my Will, to ensure those I care about are provided for after I’m gone.
