Dying Matters : Planning Ahead is a new exhibition focusing on later life and end of life planning. End of life care should help you to live as well as possible until you die and to die with dignity. People who are approaching the end of life are entitled to high-quality care, but more importantly, We believe that people should be supported to have what they consider to be a “good death” whenever possible.

Everyone goes to weddings exhibitions and speaks about weddings. How long now? Have you picked your dress? What music are you having? But not everyone gets married. In most circumstances, unlike a wedding, you don’t get any notice, when your time is up, it’s up.

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a religious humanist and celebrant service? Or what about minimising any potential liability for inheritance tax? Or what happens if you die without leaving a will? What about free assistance available to you, such as state benefits and NHS care? Or maybe just simple questions like how much does a funeral cost.

It was Benjamin Franklin who said, ‘Nothing is certain except for death and taxes’, yet death is such a taboo subject that no-one wants to talk about.

Welcome to ‘Dying Matters : Planning Ahead’, sponsored by Co-op Funeralcare, Aberdeen’s first event dedicated to life and death planning, designed to lift the taboo and assist visitors to the event to talk to experts about life and death planning such as end of life care, funeral arrangements and wealth management.

Our experts can answer all of those pressing questions at Dying Matters : Planning Ahead 2019, an annual one day event on Saturday 17th August 2019 between 10am and 430pm at the Hilton Treetops Aberdeen. Visitors to the event can engage with exhibitors all day or prebook appointments; attend seminars; use one of our quiet areas to discuss things with their loved ones; and leave being much more aware and in control of their life and death planning. Our charity partner, Fly Cup Catering, will provide food and beverages throughout the day, whilst the venue will offer more substantial offerings in the bar and restaurant.
