Nobody likes to think about their own death or the death of a loved one.

In Western culture particularly, the subject of death is almost taboo, so when death approaches we can be unprepared to deal with it.  But for the elderly, or those facing a terminal illness, there are choices to be made about the best way to die, particularly whether it is always preferable to keep people alive at all costs. 

Life Circle is a new charity formed by the merger of Home Hospice and Life Goes On and they offer assistance to those who are dying and their loved ones.

While 80% of people say they would prefer to die at home, only about 30% manage to do it. 

Life Circle assists those at the end of life to die in the place of their choice.  Life Circle CEO Brynnie Goodwill talks about dealing with terminal illness and what makes a good death.
