Being there for someone with a terminal illness

Caring for a friend or family member with a terminal illness can be both rewarding and challenging. Our information can help you know what to expect - from day to day caring to looking after your own needs. 

Prefer to read a booklet or listen to this information?

A lot of our information for people living with a terminal illness, and their families, is available in print. And we produce some of our most popular content in audio, large print, Braille and in Welsh.
