Caring for those in the later stages of life

Caring for those in the Later Stages of Life is a course specifically designed for carers looking after someone with a life limiting illness or near the end of life.

Course aims

  • Enable carers to feel more confident in making decisions about their┬ácaring role
  • Encourage carers to be aware of and to look after their own mental and physical health
  • Reduce isolation
  • Provide information about practical and/or financial support for carers
  • Introduce participants to a range of ideas and techniques to help them improve their levels of self-esteem and self-confidence.

What to expect

The course is delivered in a friendly and relaxed style. There will be a maximum of 12 carers on the course.

Each participant will be given a folder at the start of the course and handouts each week. You can make your own notes too if you want to and spare paper and pens will be available for this.

Participants are expected to attend all 5 sessions if possible, but we do understand that for carers this is sometimes difficult. If you are unable to attend any sessions just let our Courses Administrator know as soon as possible.
