Memorials - What can we do about funerals?

Ceremony has been used for thousands of years as a psychological/ spiritual, social and cultural mechanism to assist people to deal with major life changes.

DID YOU KNOW?

  • 75% of us have not had end of life discussions
  • 60% think we don’t talk about death enough
  • Over 70% of us die in hospital though most of us would prefer to die at home
  • Very few of us die with an advance care plan (less than 10 percent)
  • The number of Australians aged 65 and over will double by 2050 increasing our need to plan while well and share our wishes with our loved ones

A TIP:

  • Who would you like to speak for you if you were too sick or unable to speak for yourself? 
  • Have you talked to that person about your wishes?
