Welcome to Healthy Dudley. This is the new public health website.

Planning ahead – bereavement


Planning ahead for bereavement.


This information will help you consider:

  • How to plan ahead for the end of life so those you leave behind know what you would have wanted
  • How to have the conversations that matter so you can say what needs to be said
  • How to prepare for when you may be living alone so you can live as well as you can
  • How to support a family member, a friend or a work colleague who has been bereaved

While we know bereavement can be very painful this video is not designed to offer bereavement support.  The video is about looking at having the conversations to help plan ahead for bereavement.

If you do feel that you would need some support with a recent or a more distant bereavement please do check out our bereavement pages.
