It’s important to be able to recognise the common signs of when someone be approaching the last year of their life. If you can recognise them, it will help make sure the person you’re caring for can receive the best possible care, and everyone around them can be prepared.
Symptom management is part of palliative and end of life care. It aims to relieve distress – whether that’s physical, psychological, spiritual or social distress – to help improve a person’s quality of life.
Grief and bereavement
Many people worry about about saying the wrong thing to someone who has been bereaved, or might not know how to help.
Understanding the process, and impact, of grief and bereavement can equip us to better support people who are bereaved.
