Choosing to die at home

Context:
Despite the fact that the majority in surveys express a wish to die at home, this is increasingly difficult with the disappearance of the extended family and the loss of sense of neighbourhood.
Implementation:
The Natural Death Centre in the UK was founded to confront taboos about death and primarily to support families with a dying person at home.

Terminally ill Belgians who want to die at home will receive 19,500 BEF a month from the beginning of 2000.
