Hospice releases short film for Dying Matters Awareness Week

15 May 2018

LOROS Hospice in Leicester have created a short video about what end of life care can look like without support.

‘The End’ is a powerful depiction of end of life care with and without support. Its aim is to gives viewers an insight into what the hospice can offer in what is often the hardest time of people’s lives. Jo Kavanagh, Director of Care Services explains:

 “We are trying a different approach to promote what we do as a hospice. The End has been produced to provoke an emotive response, and to hopefully get people thinking and talking about what happens at the end of their lives.”

“We want to send out a memorable message about end of life care and demonstrate the difference the hospice can make to patients and families.’’

“It is only a minute and a half long but we hope that it captures the essence of the care that we deliver and helps to dispel some of the myths often associated with hospices.’’

LOROS partnered with Affixxius Films to create the video, who are well-known for the production of the award-winning ‘Kayleigh’s Love Story’, the tragic true story of murdered Leicestershire teenager Kayleigh Hayward.

Speaking about ‘The End’, Miles Latham, of Affixxius Films said:

“It is a great honour for the team at Affixxius Films to be working alongside LOROS on this exciting project.  From a storytelling perspective, LOROS have been admirably brave in allowing us to portray their incredible work in such a provocative and realistic way.” 

“The sense of optimism and human kindness in the darkest of times is, without doubt, one of the most remarkable sides to the LOROS provision, and we sincerely hope that this film project will reflect that.”

The End has been released to coincide with Dying Matters Awareness Week. As part of the week’s events, LOROS will also be hosting ‘Dying to Talk’ sessions to help people start important conversations about death and dying. Events will discuss how to support those that are bereaved, those facing bereavement, and people approaching the end of life. All are free to attend.
