Pushing Up the Daisies Network Event

Saturday September 3rd

Roseisle Village Hall

10:30am-1pm Introduction to Caring for a Loved One at Home after Death

For the few days between death and burial or cremation, people have the option to care for their deceased loved one’s body themselves. This tender act can aid in grieving, bring a sense of fulfillment, and help families, including children, to meet death as something normal and natural.

Learn the potential benefits and practicalities of caring for a body at home after death.

Soup lunch Provided

Donations on the day to cover expenses appreciated. Suggested donation £10.
