How prepared are YOU?

"Before I go myself, I would love 1 million people to have completed their own end-of-life plans!"

Jane Duncan Rogers (Before I Go Solutions Founder)

That is a BIG aim!  (and a Before I Go aim!)

With your help though, this is possible.

 

So what IS a good end of life plan?

Well, it's much more than just a will or funeral plan, in fact it covers 8 areas, and there's lots of things to be taken care of in each area.

For instance, have you thought about your online presence?

You will continue living online, unless you do something about it now, before you pop your clogs.

Everyone should read this

"Every adult in the English-speaking world needs to read, and use, Before I Go: The Essential Guide to Creating a Good End of Life Plan by Jane Duncan Rogers. It’s a practical, comprehensive, upbeat guide to just about everything that needs to be addressed before you die".

Gail Rubin www.agoodgoodbye.com

A deeper intimacy

"Jane's work has finally got us going on something we had been saying for ages 'would be a good idea', and it is much more than about just the legal necessities. Just as important for us was to explore what each of us needs to know about continuing life without our partner. This has surprisingly brought a depth of intimacy between us - looking at the possibility of incapacity and death for either one of us has not been the dreadful subject one could imagine. Now the ball is rolling it feels good and positive". Hugh & Janet, Scotland

A healing experience

"Reading Gifted by Grief is a healing experience.  Jane has written a raw memoir, as her friend Andrea Gardner says, that is intimate and spacious, private and revealing, and honest and wise. In sharing her journey with grief, Jane helps us with our journey too.  I feel lighter each time I read another bit of her manuscript. In witnessing her healing, I am experiencing my own.  I trust that you will experience something like this too". Dr. Robert Holden

Absolutely brilliant!

"Thanks so much for the BIG course. You are absolutely brilliant at it and the course is very thorough and well thought out. I love your combination of practical, matter of fact information, plus your loving kindness and care for people’s difficult experiences" Lisa Mead, Scotland

An end to procrastination

"I was aware I needed to take care of my end of life stuff, as I am downsizing before a move abroad. But my procrastination had been going on for at least two years!  Finally, through doing the BIG Method course, I have added to what I already have, a document of how I want my final days to be; ring-binder folder so everything is in one place; documentation re who needs to know what, and where it is, including all digital info, passwords, etc." Helen Sharp, England

A sense of peace

"I've always been interested in learning more about the subject of death.I feel like I have a sense of understanding of when it becomes 'my time' to let go of mind, body and soul, but I didn't have any understanding of the other important tasks that should be taken care of before I go. After taking Jane's course I feel more at ease with having my documents completed and a sense of peace that my family and friends will know my wishes for my last chapter in life" Lorrie Tyler, USA

I've learnt to celebrate every step of the way

"After 1 year of Get It Done! coaching with Jane I can honestly say I feel less anxious and more excited when I get to ‘work’! My personal life and business have flourished this past year and I know that working with Jane has contributed to this growth. I can now handle the ‘to do list’ better than before, and I feel more consistent in my life and have learnt to celebrate every step of the way. Jane has gently kept me accountable and I can feel my focus on tasks has improved - I’m feeling my way through them rather than thinking what I have to do. When I do this I feel more aligned when completing tasks and thus am more productive in my work" Grace Kym Thorne, End of Life Doula, England

Before I Go Solutions is a social enterprise (aka a not-for-profit)

This means we have a

social mission

of helping people, and this is at least, if not more important, than making profits (indeed, if any profits are made they have to be returned to the company or the community).

In order to fulfill our associated social aim of helping the growing numbers of carers and caregivers for free, we offer various paid services.

It is our responsibility to operate a healthy business, and it is these services that help to generate the funds required to serve those in society that do not have the time or financial resources to create their own end of life plans.

Free help for carers and the cared for!  

Because I have been a carer (for my husband when he had ME, and also during his last year of stomach cancer), here at Before I Go Solutions, we also offer carers and the cared for the opportunity to get their end of life plans done.

Here's how we do it - for every person who purchases one of the online Before I Go Method courses, we give one away to a caregiver.

That means two people will likely benefit - the cared for, as well as the caregiver.

To apply: If you are a carer, or you have someone caring for you, and you want to take advantage of this, please visit this page.

You'll be asked to complete a short form, and then will be directed to complimentary access to the Before I Go Method: End of Life Planning Made Easy online course.
