Useful information for Patients and Carers

A GUIDE FOR CARERS

There are many people who are caring for someone who is dying throughout New Zealand.  Sometimes it can be difficult to know what to do or what help and support is available.

Hospice New Zealand has designed a booklet to provide a clearer picture of the situation and to answer some of the questions or issues that might come up 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.

The type of topics covered in the guide are include, being a caregiver, caring for a loved one, circles of support, home nursing tips and practical matters.
