We understand that when you receive the news someone you care for is nearing the final stages of life, you will have a range of feelings and concerns.
At this time, it’s important to consider your own needs and wellbeing. You may have questions around what will happen or what to do when the time comes, or be unsure about what support is available to you.
Pilgrims Hospices, together with East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust (EKHUFT), have put together a helpful information pack for carers.
Carers will find information and sources of support that may be helpful at this difficult time.
A patient pack is also available.
We know that providing the support patients need can help them stay independent, improve symptoms and make a difference in enabling them, and their family, friends and carers to live each day well.
