Caring for someone with a terminal illness


In this section you can find out about caring for someone with a terminal illness by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories on film. Researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 40 people in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as becoming a carer, impact on work and lifestyle and planning for death. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
