To Live With Dying Website

To Live With Dying’ is a website for residents in East Suffolk. It is a portal to information and support around subjects related to death, dying and cherishing life.

Death is a natural process and one that comes to us all, albeit in many different ways. It is part of life, yet many of us are hesitant to talk about it, or plan for it. This website will guide you to local and national resources that provide helpful information and support. From how to live with a life-limiting illness, to finding bereavement and practical support when someone dies. It has been created by NHS Ipswich and East Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group and Suffolk County Council in collaboration with local health and wellbeing organisations.

By talking about death and dying in our everyday lives and making plans for the future, we can cherish every moment of the life we have and improve the experience of end of life, for both for ourselves and our loved ones.
