Are you preparing to care for someone towards the end of their life?

We know you will be experiencing a whole range of emotions and are unsure of what happens next. You might be caring for someone who has a critical diagnosis or is naturally nearing the end of their life and want to  know what the future might hold and how to deal with it.

We are offering four workshops, delivered both over Zoom and in-person by skilled health professionals, to help you learn about end of life care, the stages of grief, coping techniques and where to access  professional support. We will provide the practical things you need to know and the chance to discuss your feelings.
