Dying to Know Day

Dying to Know Day is about socialising conversations around end of life

The aim is to motivate everyday people, healthcare organisations & employers to create space for these conversations to happen. Quite simply, we understand this is a tough conversation to have. Dealing with a life limiting diagnosis and death is traumatic enough, but if we don’t connect through one of humanity’s only shared experiences, the emotional trauma can last years, and even through generations.

Preparing an end-of-life plan, for example, helps those you leave behind honour your final wishes. A plan, in many ways like a birth plan, lays out your choices based on your values, ensuring you depart this world on your own terms. And the very act of sharing hopes & fears before we are in that emotional moment, can create connections that simply wouldn’t have happened otherwise. The sharing of lived stories, long forgotten dreams & regrets, even passing on the knowledge of what matters most, in the final moments of our lives.

Some compelling statistics:

● Over 70% of Australians want to die at home, but only 14% actually do. Why? It takes planning and people to help to die at home.

● 75% of people have not discussed end of life with their families

● 45% of Australians die without even having a will in place!

● 92% of deaths are expected. Yet despite the knowledge of what’s coming, only 28% have actually had this most important conversation with loved ones.
