What end of life care involves
End of life care is support for people who are in the last months or years of their life. End of life care should help you to live as well as possible until you die and to die with dignity. The people providing your care should ask you about your wishes and preferences, and take these into account as they work with you to plan your care. They should also support your family, carers or other people who are important to you.

End of Life Care

Dr Kate Granger, was a great supporter of NCPC and Dying Matters and she spoke at a number of events. Dr Granger launched the #hellomynameis campaign. It’s not always easy to talk about death or dying but when we don’t talk about what matters it can increase feelings of isolation, loneliness and distress.
