It's important to plan for illness, death and bereavement. But why do we still find it so difficult to talk about dying?
As part of our Dying Matters campaign, we asked four members of the Havens Hospices Care Team why it's vital to start those conversations now.

Havens Hospices provides palliative nursing and supportive care to adults, young people and children living with complex or incurable conditions across Essex.
Our specialist Care Teams can support them and their family living throughout illness, death and bereavement, in the comfort of their own home and through our hospice services, Fair Havens and Little Havens.
We focus on their quality of life, caring for individual physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual needs.
Havens Hospices is a registered charity – not part of the NHS – and receives limited government funding.
We don’t charge a penny for any of our care services. Our hospice care can only exist because of the support and generosity of the community. Together, we’re ‘Making every day count’.
