have you ever thought about what you would do if someone close to you is terminally ill? perhaps you thought that death happens in hospital or quietly at home. did you know that there is a wealth of things out there for you to call on for help? BUT and here is the big but, you have to know the system you have to know what will help what doensnt help and who to speak to and who to TRUST. unfortuanely when you get to this point of needing this help you are usually drained, upset, not thinking straight and very fed up. the truth is we are often in an extremely vulnerable state and that is when things go wrong and organisations and aencies that dont care properly take advantage.

people in the last stages of life need to be treated with dignity and respect, their wishes listned to and every effort made to ensure that they are comfortable. their relatives need the same understanding and support and it should never be assumed that they dont need some form of help or support. they have the right to refuse it but it should always be offered. to be continued….


Hello world!
