Talking to your partner or another family member well in advance will help you to make important decisions about what will happen after you die, such as who will look after your children and how you would ensure their financial security.
By thinking about these options now and working through our checklists, you can reduce the burden on your loved ones when you do reach the end of your life while ensuring your wishes are followed when it comes to your family’s care.
Caring for a friend or relative who has a life-limiting illness can be challenging, especially if you are unsure of their wishes or where you can go for help.
The most important thing to remember is you are not on your own. There is lots of information and there are lots of websites which can help you better understand the support that is available to make both you and your loved one’s life a little easier.
The for someone else section of this website will also give you lots of useful guidance if you are caring for someone who is dying. Alternatively, please do get in touch if you need more help.
Please visit our checklists page and download the information which you feel will help you the most and visit our directory of local palliative care services.
