Inviting a Marie Curie Nurse into your home for the first time can feel a bit daunting if you don't know what to expect.
So to help break the ice, we've made three short films to help you get a better understanding of their work.
Across the UK there are more than 2,000 Marie Curie Nurses and Senior Healthcare Assistants providing free care at the end of life to people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.
We've brought together three of our nursing team - Catherine, Franky and Lorna - to talk about what it's like to be a Marie Curie Nurse, what they enjoy about their job and how they hope to make a difference to patients and families.
Catherine, Franky and Lorna tell us what its like to be a Marie Curie Nurse and what it means to them to help people die in the place of their choice.Watch the film
