End of Life Conversations
What do you say when you don't know what to say!
It is easy to avoid having difficult conversations, but it can be very lonely and isolating to be at the end of life and have no-one who will acknowledges this.
'You will be fine!' or 'when you are better ...' punctuate many conversations believing, that where there is life there is hope. Avoidance will not change the outcome but it may change the dying person's experience of end of life, as well as leaving friends and family having to live with all that was unsaid. That which is unsaid then remains unsaid.
Having difficult conversations is not always as difficult as it seems, it is simply knowing where to start.
