At an event at The Regency Hotel in Douglas yesterday, the End of Life Matters working group launched their new booklet, entitled Putting Your House in Order.
The End of Life Matters initiative, which Cruse Bereavement Care Isle of Man is part of, encourages everyone, regardless of age or health, to take simple steps to make their end of life experience better; for themselves and for their family and friends.
The new booklet gives guidance on the things that should be considered and planned for at the end of your life. The free booklet will be available from many places around the Island, including Cruse Bereavement Care Isle of Man, Hospice Isle of Man and Kirk Braddan, and can also be found on our End of Life Matters page.
To coincide with the launch of this booklet, Cruse also launched a companion booklet entitled My End of Life Plan, which is designed to help your family and friends know and understand your wishes, and where to find your important information and documents. This booklet can also be found on our website.
A pack containing a paper version of these booklets, as well as other supporting documentation is available from our office. If you would like to receive a copy, please let us know.
We are very proud of this booklet and the End of Life Matters initiative and are sure that many people will find it a useful resource.
