First International Last Aid conference in Sønderborg September 6th 2019
We would like to welcome you to the first international Last Aid conference in Sønderborg in Denmark the 6th of September 2019.
Since 2015 Last Aid courses have been introduced in 10 European countries to teach citizens how to care for seriously ill and dying people. Our aim is to empower everybody to participate in the care for seriously ill people including those who want to die at home. Therefore everybody should know how to care and to provide Last Aid.
First Aid aims to save lives – Last Aid aims to reduce suffering and increase quality of life.
Throughout Europe more than 70% of the people would prefer to die at home.
Lets take care of them together. We need both citizens and professional to reach our aim.
