Dignity in death

Dying at home scheme's cash plea
A leading charity says plans to help more terminally ill people die at home under a pioneering nursing scheme are at risk due to a lack of funding. Marie Curie Cancer Care says £2m more a year would allow it to extend a scheme which has more than doubled the number spending their last days at home. The warning comes as a YouGov survey suggests more than 70% of people would feel happiest dying at home. But fewer than one in seven think they would get the care they need.
