How to talk about dying

Have you ever tried to speak to someone about dying?

If you have, you will know that this is dangerous territory. Things can go terribly wrong very quickly. A well-intended comment or question can easily be taken the wrong way. It may not be the right time to have the conversation, or it may simply be too difficult to start.

We know that there is not a perfect way to speak about dying, so we have put it all down in writing. We talk about dying without saying a word.

Death, Dying and Donuts is the only book you need to read to understand dying. It is safe to digest in your own time, in your own way, without the risk of offending anyone.

For Patients, Family & Carers

Our resources will equip you for life, the journey at the end of life and how to leave a lasting impression after life has ended.
