Bucket list

As end of life approaches, many people think of the things they would really like to do: perhaps to fulfill ambitions they have always had, to visit places they would like to see or spend time with people they haven’t seen in ages.

Friends and family can be a huge help in making final wishes come true: those involved in palliative and end of life care can also play a part, and should remember that sometimes it is very simple things that can matter most: an hour with a pet can mean the world to someone unable to be at home.
