Life is a gift, precious, to be savoured and enjoyed

Chiltern Compass aims to support the local community in talking about dying and end of life planning. We’re based in Amersham and Chesham, offering support across the Chilterns.

It’s easy to put off planning for later life, and many people find it daunting or fearful. Talking about dying does not bring it any closer, but taking practical steps can help alleviate feelings of burden and uncertainty and allow you to live life more fully. We can help provide a direction that suits you.

One of the most loving things you can do

Having that conversation can be one of the most loving things you can do for those close to you.

Talking about dying frees you to live life in the present and to the full. Enjoying the sights and experiences along the path you travel. A burden is lifted, your vision is clearer, your love more intense.
