At the end of life

Dealing with the news

There are many practical and emotional issues to work through when you know you are reaching the end of your life.

  • Coping with the news

    Hearing that you may be reaching the end of your life can be very difficult, but family, friends and professionals can support you.

  • Sorting things out

    When people are told they may be nearing their life, many find they have unfinished business to sort out.

  • Financial help

    You may be worrying about your finances at a time when you least need it. Financial help is available.

  • Where you would like to be looked after?

    Choosing where you’ll die may depend on what you want, what help you have from family and friends and what services are available where you live.
