What to expect when someone important to you is dying. A guide for carers, families and friends of dying people

What to expect when someone important to you is dying. A guide for carers, families and friends of dying people (March 2018)

This booklet is for people caring for someone who is, or who may soon be, in the last stages of life. It is designed to help them prepare for what to expect in the very last days and hours of a person's life. It explains the physical changes that someone may go through when they are dying and what can be done to make them more comfortable, the kind of care a dying person can expect to receive, and where to turn to for help if there are concerns about the end-of-life care received.
