UK program adopts “Ok to Die” end-of-life preparation checklists for new campaign…”Be Ready for It”

Saturday, 28 Sep 2013 04:32

Not to be outdone, my friends in the UK boldly move British Society closer to thinking more openly and practically about death and dying-and we are honored to have shared our end-of-life preparation checklists for the development of this online campaign, Be Ready for It (created and endorsed by the Norfolk and Suffolk Palliative Care Academy, part of the NHS).

According to project lead, Maggie Parsons, in a recent eHospice interview, “Dying well is a natural part of a good life…and needs to be put into the conext of life planning. It’s something people should be thinking about when they have a baby, get married or retire.” The website makes such planning easy and accessible.

Congratulations to Maggie, and the whole team for such a wonderful job. We wish you all success!

Be sure to check out this very inviting site and download the information and checklists for yourself or someone you love: bereadyforit.org.uk

May we all “be ready for it”!
