One thing in life is certain… we will all die one day. Talking about it, won’t make it happen!
People reaching the end of life should be enabled to die in comfort, with dignity and in the surroundings of their choice. Haringey is committed to caring for these people, and the people important to them, with compassion and in a manner which is respectful of their expressed wishes.
The new Haringey Palliative Care Service will be officially launched by David Lammy MP at this special event, which will be held at Tottenham Town Hall N15 on Friday 13 May 2016. The event will run from 10.30am to 3pm.
This is a FREE drop-in event for people in Haringey, with talks, stalls and information from the Haringey Palliative Care Team, Alzheimer’s Society, local hospices, local funeral directors, Compassion in Dying, and Dementia Services. Local solicitors will be on hand with legal advice, and there will be free health checks and refreshments throughout the day. Local people will also have the opportunity to plan their ‘Digital Legacy’, discuss the creation of a memory box for their family and friends, and discover the many options for funerals.
All welcome to attend. Come along for the whole day or pop in at any time.

This event ties in with Dying Matters Week (9-15 May), a national campaign which helps to highlight the importance of talking about dying, death and bereavement.
