End of life care
Information and links for professionals who support people and their families at the end of life
This resource is for people who work with adults who are approaching the end of life. Some 500,000 people die each year and, because of the ageing population, that number is predicted to rise over the next few years. It’s important that social care and health professionals who work with people at the end of life and their families have access to high quality resources and information so they can give the best care possible.
This guide is about enabling people who want to die at home to do so and improving the quality of care they receive.
