Your experiences with dying, death and grief
The Hospice is launching a new survey to understand how informed and prepared people living in Mildenhall feel about facing dying, death, caring and grief.
We want people in the town to share their understanding, knowledge and experiences by completing a survey developed by Western Sydney University and the GroundSwell Project in Australia.
The Hospice’s has recently spent six months working more closely with a variety of different groups and organisations in the town, and we hope this survey will help us discover what else could be done so people feel better prepared and supported.
Barbara Gale, Chief Executive, said: “As a charity St Nicholas Hospice Care strives for everyone to matter in life and death. Alongside providing specialist care, we also want to help equip communities and people to be better able to live with dying, death, caring and grief.
“As we move forward we want to ensure not only that we are delivering compassionate services that meet the needs of our community, but we help people feel prepared and able to support one another.
“When we started working more closely with different groups and organisations in Mildenhall it quickly became apparent that the community was already a compassionate one. People felt comfortable supporting each other and there was a willingness to know and do more.
“We hope the results of this survey will help us to understand areas of work which could strengthen individual and community capacity to take action and care for one another at times of dying, death, caring and grief.”
The survey, which opens on Tuesday, 27 August, will close on Tuesday, 8 October , at midday, and takes around 15 minutes to complete.
