NHS Choices End of Life Care Guide

The NHS Choices End of Life Care Guide may be useful for people who are caring for someone who is dying, or for people who want to plan in advance for their own end of life care.

It explains what you can expect from end of life care, including palliative care to control pain and other symptoms and psychological, social and spiritual support.

You can also find information about your rights and choices, including refusing treatment, setting down your wishes for your future treatment, and how to give someone the legal right to make decisions for you if you are no longer capable.

The guide also contains information about talking to your family and carers about dying and about your wishes.

As we get older we are more likely to develop a long term condition.  Although it can make life more difficult, with good support in place it is possible to live well with a long term condition.  You GP can help you to manage a long term condition.  It's also possible to get some care at home if it's needed. 

You can find a helpful Long Term Condition Assessment Tool on the NHS Choices website.

Dementia

Dementia is a group of symptoms caused by specific brain disorders. The most common cause is Alzheimer’s disease, but it can also be the result of a stroke or mini-strokes or other conditions.
