A Guide for Carers


Are you caring for someone with a life limiting condition? Sometimes it can be difficult to know what to do or what help and support is available.


Hospice NZ has designed a helpful booklet to answer some of the questions or issues that might arise as part of this journey.


It is important to remember you are not alone.

There are few experiences more difficult than caring for someone at the end of their life. Each of us faces death as uniquely as we lead our life. We all hope that when death comes it will be as peaceful and dignified as possible. We also hope we'll face it feeling comfortable in our surroundings, well cared for and that those we love are well supported.


Topics covered in this useful guide include caring for a loved one at home, circles of support, home nursing tips and many other practical matters.


Thanks to the support of the Pub Charity, Hospice EBOP supplies copies of A Guide for Carers to patients' families. A pdf of the full booklet is available below.
