Can I die at home with voluntary assisted dying?


There are no guarantees a person will be able to die at home; this depends on someone’s circumstances and the services in their area. That said, people are often better able to plan ahead if they know they are going to have an assisted death. For many that will mean planning to be at home, often with loved ones present.

Voluntary assisted dying can also happen in hospitals and residential facilities like nursing homes.
