We understand that when you receive the news that you are 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 patients.
The pack includes how to talk to your family and/or friends about your wishes and support needs.
A carer pack is also available.
We know that having the support you need can help you stay independent, improve symptoms and make a difference in enabling you, and your family, friends and carers to live each day well.
