Give me the dignity to say Goodbye!

Acknowledging feelings when someone passes away.

what is a mini memorial
What is a Mini Memorial?
  • A short service held in a comfortable lounge room, a familiar setting within the cottage.
  • An intimate gathering rather than a larger potentially more distressing and confusing setting of a formal funeral.
  • The focus is not religious, but spiritual.
  • To reflect quietly, share memories of the person that passed away, to pray, to acknowledge and express feelings.

Why meet together in this way?
  • It is a statement that the deceased person was valued by others in the community.
  • It acknowledges personhood and citizenship.
  • It is a transparent process, acknowledges death’s reality.
  • It is what other adults do, they mark the occasion and say their good bye appropriately.
  • People living with dementia have their feelings acknowledged sensitively. This aids in bringing closure, and assists in healing the grieving process.
  • It allows residents to say good bye in a safe, and supportive environment.
  • The residents ask for it! This shows how much they value it.
