Begravelses Service invites everyone to a conversation about death, dying and living on without your loved ones. In recent years it has become more evident that danish people do not discuss death even when someone close to you is sick or terminal ill. We would like to focus on how conversations can help people move on after the loss of a loved one. Peter Thomassen will be talking to several people who have been active in the media regarding personal loss.

In England it is estimated that around 676,000 people have dementia. In the whole of the UK, the number of people with dementia is estimated at 850,000. It is therefore essential that we focus on improving end of life care for Dementia.
