Why bother using cards?
Let's face it, most people find the thought of any kind of conversation about death a bit intimidating, and therefore tend to avoid it.
But given that we know it's one of the few things that is definitely going to happen, it really helps in the art of dying well if you can have conversations around this with your nearest and dearest well before it does actually happen. And using these end of life planning cards makes broaching this subject much easier.
My partner struggles to plan ahead when it comes to death and I've tried a few times.... however last night I spent time going through the cards with him and, lo and behold, we have the beginnings of a plan!

I played with my uncle - he was hesitant at first but as the activity moved on it stimulated lots of conversation. He has most of his EOL planning in order but he said ‘it’s surprising how much more there is to consider’. I learnt about some finer details of my his wishes regarding his funeral which hadn’t come to light before
Who are they for?
YOU - if you want to feel the peace of mind of having planned ahead for the inevitable, get clear about what is important to you and those you love, and who wants to make end of life conversations MUCH easier with family, friends and colleagues!

It's such a relief to finally finish this task...
We took the cards on holiday to Galloway in the camper-van, and spent an enjoyable afternoon sorting the cards into finished , low ,medium and high priority. We then started planning and deciding on our actions. As agreed on holiday, we would complete the task when we got home. Once started we
have got everything done apart from music for celebration of life and update the contacts List. We have also gone through the will and death file with both children. It’s such a relief to finally finish this task although I realise we need to keep reviewing this.
I just wanted to thank you again to gently encourage me to complete this.
