Support for People Important to Us

Our palliative care journey will be easier if our carers and other people who are important to us are respected and cared for as well. Our carers need:

  • their knowledge of us and what brings us comfort acknowledged and respected
  • education and information about reasons for providing or not providing treatment options
  • contact details for 24/7 urgent care; a checklist of what to do when we die, e.g. who to phone first, and what needs to be done before the funeral home is called
  • support after our death, both immediately and in the weeks and months to follow. Our carers should never feel abandoned.
