Join Hospiscare at Devon County Show

 

Devon County Show logoThis year Hospiscare has been chosen as Devon County Show’s Charity of the Year (16-18 May). If you’re visiting the show, pop along to Avenue F to have a chat with the experts about the questions that really matter to you.

Hospiscare want to open up the conversation about death. You only die once, so how do you do that well? If you start having conversations early on about what matters to you, then the chances are you probably can.

Talking about death does not tempt fate. It won’t make it happen sooner. You may be comfortable with the subject or you might have never given it a second thought. Whichever camp you’re in, Hospiscare want to help by making you aware of your choices. Choices that, if made in advance, can support you to die well in the place you want to be and with peace of mind.

You may have many more years to live or your time may be limited to months, weeks or days. Whatever your circumstance, if you live in Exeter, Mid or East Devon, and are a Hospiscare patient, they are here to help you from diagnosis till the end of your life. Hospiscare will treat you as an individual and make every effort to enable you to live the rest of your life in the way you want.

Maggie Draper, Hospiscare’s Assistant Director Supportive Care and Quality, explains:

“Often the biggest hurdle is that initial conversation about dying. It’s never going to be easy to bring it up with those close to you. But families often tell us it’s a relief to drop the taboo and have a chat. There is a sense of facing it together, it does provide some comfort to know what a person’s wishes are surrounding their own death.

 “No one wants to spend their final days on this earth worrying about what needs to be sorted out. Before you even get ill why not make a list and have a plan ready? Then you can spend those last precious days, weeks and months doing what really matters most to you.”

If you want to find out more about how to talk about planning for the future with your loved ones or you want to know more about Hospiscare services, we’d love to see you at our stand on Avenue F at the Devon County Show.

Because every day matters… What matters to you?
