Community

Share your wisdom and get support from others
who understand what you're going through

Share, connect & support

To say that we are a community is to recognise our shared experiences and values. It’s about being there for each other in times of need; having someone to talk to, a shoulder to cry on and a sounding board for advice. This is especially important to do with people who have walked the same path as you. That’s why we’ve created this Facebook group for people just like you! Come and join us today to learn more about how to make the most of your life’s journey. 

The Dying To Understand Facebook pages are the perfect place for those who are looking to connect with others and have meaningful conversations. This supportive community will help you feel understood and not so alone. It is a safe place for you to chat, share your wisdom and experiences. For both patients and carers, it is a community where you can get support and advice from others who understand what you’re going through.

The importance of community

We know that the dying journey can sometimes be impossibly difficult. However, things are better when we do them together and as a family. This does not have to be our biological family, but it is still a community of people where you feel safe to be yourself, be supported and be vulnerable. But, with this also comes the responsibility to provide safety, acceptance, support and care as well.

With that, we invite you to join one of our two communities. The first one is for those who are dying, the second one is for those who are the support system for patients. Each of which has different issues, questions and concerns that can be addressed through the help of others in the group.

In both of these communities, we provide a safe place for people to share their experiences and connect with others who understand what they are going through.

For Patients

Dying is difficult. Patients are constantly battling a host of emotions, decisions and treatments. It can be scary, frustrating and overwhelming.  There are some things that are too difficult to ask.  However, knowing where to go and being able to ask the right questions can make this journey easier.

There are things that only those who are dying, feel and understand. Connecting with others who know what you are going through can be a great comfort. Our Facebook group is a space where you can be a part of these conversations. Join and connect today.

For Carers

It can sometimes be hard work to care for someone who is dying and it is often a thankless job. It can feel never-ending and it is exhausting. But it is also a time when we can show our loved ones how much we care.

However, carers have their own unique needs and they should not be forgotten. This Facebook community is for the support system that cares for those who are dying. It is a space where you can truly express your emotions, thoughts and troubles while providing support for others similar to you. Join and connect today.
