Last Aid is a free and simple half-day course which aims to educate the community about the basics of palliative care and care for dying people.
We are offering two course per month from July to December 2021. Please us the Register button below to go to eventbrite and sign up.
Our instructors offer practical advice on how you can provide comfort to someone who is dying, and what you can do to plan for your own and your family's future.
Last Aid training is informal, informative, and open to anyone over the age of 16 with an interest in the topic. Opportunities are provided for participants to get involved with the discussions.
The topics discussed are delivered in 4 sections:
- dying as a normal part of life
- planning ahead
- relieving suffering
- final goodbyes.
You can book a place online here.

Feedback from previous participants:
This topic was most interesting for me:
- “death plan/funeral plan, recognition that end of life care can be difficult and stressful”
- “Normalising death can only be a positive and increasing the awareness around final stages of life”
I have gained confidence with:
- “those in the last stages of life, and more importantly, those attempting to come to terms with relative in the last stages of life”
- “broaching the subject of death and dying”
- “end of life care, supporting colleagues, friends and families. Also got me thinking about my own personal circumstances”
- “what I need to do for myself and my family”
