You can find really good support from specialist social workers, specialist nurses and hospice staff and we encourage you to use their skills and expertise to help you prepare for your death.
You can also use the thinking tools we’ve developed for people who are approaching death. They will enable you to think about what’s important to you at this time, and how you would like to plan the end of your life.
