Has your caring role ended or changed?

Looking after someone may be a large and significant part of your life, but often your caring role will change over time, and may come to an end. The reasons may vary considerably.

The person you are looking after may have recovered or their needs have changed. We can provide support if you are dealing with:

  • bereavement – if you have sadly lost the person for whom you cared

  • residential care – if their needs have escalated and you can no longer care for them at home

  • end of life planning – you may need support to help you consider what to do and how to cope when someone you're caring for is approaching the end of their life

  • life after caring – you may wonder what you can do next and where you can apply your skills. We can provide ideas and support for your next steps.
