Caring for the dying support
Caring for someone nearing end of life is a special and sometimes challenging role. The good news is you don’t have to do it alone. Our volunteers and staff are here to support you, and to understand your needs and concerns.
Our volunteers understand the stresses that come with the caring role and are there to support you through. One of the main ways a volunteer can help is to stay with the person you are caring for while you take a break. Volunteers usually visit once a week at negotiated times. Your volunteer will always lend a ‘listening ear’ when you need one and will not advise or judge you in any way.
