Advice from other carers

As part of a research project funded by Marie Curie, people from across the UK were interviewed about their experiences of caring for someone with a terminal illness in the context of their family, work and social lives.

Hear from other carers on Healthtalkonline

The aim of this project is to improve understanding of carers’ experiences and offer an online resource to help other carers with or without professional input.

The project was conducted by the Health Experiences Research Group at the University of Oxford/DIPEx.

You can listen to some of the experiences of carers below. To hear the experiences of other carers, visit Healthtalkonline  .
