All your information kept in one place, to help those you love care for you
If you are getting old and frail, who is the person you would trust to tell you your driving is so bad you need to stop?
Or if you had an accident and had to be rushed to hospital, where would anyone find your medical details if you were too ill to provide them?
And where is your legal and financial information kept? When you die, do you want to be buried or cremated, have a church service, or a celebrant?
This handbook is where all this information can be kept, in one place, to help those we love care for us.
There is no way of avoiding the sadness and anxiety that comes with a grave llness, old age and death but setting out how we want to deal with it can make it so much easier for everyone.
Just writing to give you some feedback regarding your book, ‘how to die happy’.
I work in palliative care and constantly encouraging patients and carers to discuss as a family, the important matters that everyone needs to address such as Wills funerals POA etc.
I have found your book to be very user-friendly.
A perfect size, easy to navigate and covers absolutely everything that needs to be addressed when a loved one is terminally ill or post death.
I have received positive feed back for this very reason.
It is a great reminder to us all. In fact it has also enticed some people to start acting on it in the absence of illness.
It can be a huge relief for family to know what the patients personal wishes are and once completed, it is all about getting on with living.

Dear Sally, I saw your book at the PF Post office and bought two copies, one for us and one for my parents. Congratulations I thought it was a wonderful idea and very well done. Brilliant!!! Everyone should have one and I will get some for my children too. Thankyou, regards Kathryn.
