MacIntyre is committed to supporting everyone to feel more comfortable talking about death and dying. The award-nominated Dying to Talk project has helped so many people feel better about talking about death and dying. Since the funded project finished in 2022, MacIntyre continues to support lots of people who draw on MacIntyre’s support, and of course we reach out to families too.
Planning for the future
Our overall aim is to support people to plan for their future and have honest conversations about death and dying.
Beth Britton, a freelance campaigner, consultant, writer and blogger, has worked with MacIntyre for 10 years. Beth has contributed many articles and case studies which you can find on MacIntyre’s website.
In Beth’s latest case study with MacIntyre family member Janet from Leicester, we look at Janet's experience of having three children with a learning disability. She tells us about the death of her adult child and the impact on the other two adult children.
You can read the case study at the link below.
Normalising conversations about death
In the case study, we explore the way in which conversations around death and dying are becoming normal, and why this is important.
Janet describes the difference attending one of our regular workshops made to her outlook, and why she believes it is important for parents to have a range of resources that will help to have difficult conversations.
We're grateful to Janet for her honesty and to Beth for pulling together this case study.
We hope it, and the resources on our Death and Dying section, will be helpful to other parents who are considering those difficult conversations about death and dying.
