Who are we?
Chiltern Compass is community-orientated and aims to meet the needs of all ethnic groups and beliefs in preparation for end of life. It is a charitable incorporated company based in Amersham and Chesham, serving much of the Chilterns.
Chiltern Compass networks with other organisations involved in end of life care to provide as comprehensive advisory service as possible.
The team are a group of active and retired healthcare professionals and spiritual leaders. They have recognised the need to address the issues in helping others in preparation for dying and organ donation. Other volunteers support Chiltern Compass at events and promoting our objectives.
What do we do?
Chiltern Compass’ main aim is to encourage people to consider and talk through the issues, both practical and emotional, concerning the end of their lives. Talking with others often helps reduce the stress and fear – we are all facing the same issues.
How do we do this?
- Organising workshops to provide a supportive and safe environment for people to discuss their worries and start planning.
- Visiting community organisations and societies to talk and encourage them to understand the issues and how to support each other.
- Doing presentations for professional and caring groups to help them communicate and address end of life issues for those they care for.
- Provide booklets and manuals as a frame work to guide people through the practicalities of preparing for the end of life.
