If an employee, the business owner or partner has to deal with death, dying or bereavement, what can you do?
As part of Dying Matters Awareness Week, on Thursday 17th May Christies Care and other businesses in the Ipswich area are hosting a FREE evening of seminars designed to inform and educate employers about this important subject.
Sarah Hostler, from our training team, will be talking about advance care planning and how, by having the right plans in place, it can help them and their family to have the best end of life experience possible.
“My hope is that by talking to employers about this they can help support their employee’s colleagues and partners to access the right support to be able to put plans in place.
Imagine what it is like for families who have not had end of life discussions about what their loved one would want in the future. If the loved one then loses the capacity to make their wishes known then the family have no idea what they would have chosen for themselves. The decision then falls to the family at a stressful time and the decision then becomes that much harder to make.
We of course have to respect that some people will not want to have these discussions. This is why Christies and myself are involved – to build and develop an awareness of the choices people have, give them control and to ease the burden on families.”
Other presentations will cover:
- HR and Employment Law
- Bereavement Support
- Funeral Planning
- Wills and Probate
- Business Protection
‘Dying for a Cuppa’
On Friday 18th May we’ll be outside Debenhams in Ipswich. Stop by for a free cup of tea! We’ll be displaying the answers to frequently asked questions about end of life care and planning. We’ll even have a blank board for you to add the questions you maybe haven’t dared asked for fear of upsetting people.
