We don’t deny that talking about end of life is hard.
Facing end of life is even harder.
A Compassionate Community builds a network of people who are able to help each other, physically, practically, emotionally or spiritually.
Sometimes though in our own private space, we simply need to take inspiration from others.
Here you will find links to stories and websites that hopefully will give you that inspiration and strength.
If you would like to contribute to this page or have a story to add, please do get in contact.
