Dying to know day @ Eltham Library
Aug 8 @ 9:30 am – 11:30 am

No-one likes to talk about dying but forward planning means we can choose to die in a way that reflects ourselves and our values, while leaving our loved ones with a lot less to deal with. Topics to be discussed include: options for future planning; end-of-life care; support for families; and how to embrace death as a part of life.

Organised by Nillumbik Council in partnership with Banksia Palliative Care.

Book your place by emailing or calling 9433 3138.
