My last wishes: public presentation in the community centres

The Undertakers, Cemeteries and Crematorium Service recently published a pamphlet entitled “My last wishes” with a view to helping people express their wishes relating to their death and the organisation of their funeral. A series of public presentations of this pamphlet followed by a discussion will be organised by the Social Service in four community centres from February to April 2020.

Questions relating to the end of life and funerals are often taboo in our society. Offering the public an opportunity to learn more and, more particularly, to talk about these matters helps de-dramatise the issue of death.

The “My last wishes” pamphlet, published by the Undertakers Service, provides information and practical assistance to enable each individual to express their wishes with regard to the organisation of their funeral. This makes it easier for loved ones to takes decisions following a death. The pamphlet is available for download at the bottom of the page.

Places and times of the presentations

With a view to decentralising its services, Cité Seniors will organise a series of presentations of this pamphlet in four community centres, from February to April 2020.

After an introduction by Social Service staff members, the “My last wishes” pamphlet will be presented in detail by the Undertakers Service. This will be followed by an open forum for dialogue and discussion with the public. The presentation is free and open to all.

In addition to the activities organised at Cité Seniors, the programme designed specially for senior citizens can also be enjoyed in various community centres, offering a wider range of local services. For more information on this subject, please consult the Cité Seniors programme, available for download at the bottom of the page.
