Many people who give unpaid care or support for a friend or family member approaching the end of life do not think of themselves as a carer, but the support you provide is vital.

Caring can have positive and rewarding aspects, at the same time there are lots of reasons why caring can leave you needing support.

You may not always consider your own needs or be aware of the help that’s available.

At Pilgrims we recognise that carers play an essential role in the journey of our patients and believe you should be supported throughout this.

If you would like to attend one of the carer programmes but may worry about the person you care for being on their own please read our FAQs for details of how we can help with this too.
