Living with dying


In this section you can find out about the experiences of living with a terminal illness by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories on film. Researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 42 people (including 1 carer) in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as diagnosis, talking to children, hospice care and planning for death. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
