Dying Matters Awareness Week
What can you do? There are two inevitable events in our lives; birth and death. The first, we plan for and celebrate. The second, it feels easier to ignore. Every death affects people differently. We’re often too polite to ask for help or don’t offer for fear of saying the wrong thing. We might be unsure of our loved ones’ wishes or be in the dark about their administrative affairs. It’s all understandable. Death is a difficult subject. So, what can you do? The answer is simple – it all starts with talking. Dying Matters awareness week from 14th to 20th May is a national campaign aiming to get everyone thinking about bereavement and breaking down barriers by getting your thoughts out into the open. Lincolnshire Co-op’s funeral homes are taking part by running a series of interactive coffee mornings and drop-in events. They’re a chance for you to ask all those unanswered questions you’ve been too shy to tackle and to meet our friendly, sympathetic and professional colleagues. It’s also an opportunity to mull over your future wishes such as; what’s on your bucket list? Would you like to be buried or cremated? What music would you like at your funeral? There’s a huge range of personal touches you can add to a ceremony these days. So, whether it’s Elvis singing Love Me Tender and a motorcycle hearse or a decorated eco-cardboard coffin and an all-yellow dress code, you can let your loved ones know now
One way of recording such wishes is through a Lincolnshire Co-op funeral plan. It’s also a good way of paying for your funeral in advance, giving your family peace of mind and one less thing to handle when the time comes. Instead of insurance policies and over 50s plans which may not cover the average cost of a funeral a Lincolnshire Co-op funeral plan makes sure that whenever you come to use it, the full cost is covered if the requirements haven’t changed. Got you thinking? You can discuss all of this and much more at our Dying Matters sessions – we look forward to meeting you there.
