This is an online event only
Join us for this special event on Dying to Know Day – where we get to talk about death and dying. We will be joined by three inspiring locals: Denis Juelicher, Beth Anderson and Relle Hart.
Denis will be talking about Tender Funerals. Death affects us all and is an integral part of life. We will all die and we will all, at some time, face the death of beloved family members. Despite this, as a society we rarely discuss it and often very little is known about the options available for death care and funeral planning.
Tender Funerals is part of the community movement towards reclaiming the rites around death and dying, one of life’s most important experiences. Tender Funerals is a not-for-profit funeral service that offers choice and transparency in delivering personalised, meaningful and affordable funerals in times that can create financial or emotional distress, and community education and empowerment around after death care.
Beth is the author of Rest Assured, an interactive, light hearted, and very informative resource on a topic everyone will be faced with, your wishes and choices, regarding your eternal rest. Have you felt like you wouldn’t have a clue where to start if a loved one died? Are you worried about how your loved ones will manage when you die? Rest Assured is easy to read and easy to complete and will help you and your loved ones, in your time of need. Beth has worked and is still working in the social and community sectors.
Relle will talk about the role of an End of Life Doula, an emerging role in the Australian landscape. This incredibly important service isn’t well known or understood. Relle, who is an End of Life Doula on the Mid North Coast, will talk about the many ways an End of Life Doula can support and empower people and famili>es around death, dying, funerals and ultimately, grief.
