Our purpose is to profoundly change the experience and impact of dying by supporting the people who are living this experience.
LifeCircle delivers professional training to organisations working in the end of life arena. The training provided enables organisations to support those caring at end of life and to provide timely information about the dying process as they build carer resilience. Engagement between carers, family, friends and community is encouraged as a means of strengthening their capacity and to ensure a well supported end of life experience.
The support and information provided by organisations in the sector helps to break down barriers around the issues of death and dying and enables people to exercise their choice about how and where they wish to die. Carers no longer feel so socially isolated as their caring experience is supported. In this way LIfeCircle helps society come to see death as a natural stage of life that can be openly discussed and planned for.
LifeCircle encourages people to make informed decisions about advance care planning and other end of life issues by urging families to initiate those ‘difficult conversations’ and to talk to their GP and other healthcare professionals. It is important to record your wishes while you still have the capacity to do so and your directive or ‘living will’ can act as a guide if you experience an unexpected accident or illness.
