The voluntary advisory board

DeinAdieu is the first Swiss independent online portal to a self-determined end of life. It takes on the following topics in particular: drafting up a will, a patient decree, an advance care directive, what is palliative care and how to plan a funeral. DeinAdieu offers editorial content as well as online tools and services. It thereby respects the dignity of all portrayed personalities and stands for a respectful handling of all discussed topics.

DeinAdieu is committed to the following principles:

Self-determination

DeinAdieu stands for self-determined aging and self-determination in the third stage of life.

Independence

DeinAdieu draws attention to the possibility of bequeathing a verified Swiss aid organisation through a will, but is otherwise independent of interest groups, occupational groups or institutions.

Neutrality

DeinAdieu is politically neutral and open to any philanthropic world view.

Non-denominational

DeinAdieu is not committed to any religion or denomination, but offers insights into a wide variety of mourning traditions and farewell rituals.

Solidarity with the terminally ill

DeinAdieu is committed to promoting the best possible quality of life and access to palliative care for all those affected.
