South Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is supporting Dying Matters Awareness Week 13-19 May 2013.
The CCG will be encouraging people to think about death and dying in a positive light via regular posts on the CCG's Twitter account and NHS Facebook page.
To mark the event the public are being asked to share what their final tweet would be and to name five things to do before dying.
This year's theme is 'be ready for it' - taking five simple steps to make any end of life experience better, both for them and for their loved ones.
The five steps are:
1. Make a will
2. Record your funeral wishes
3. Plan your future care and support
4. Register as an organ donor
5. Tell your loved ones your wishes
