The death of someone close is often a shock, even if you are expecting it, and it is hard to prepare yourself for how you may feel. For most of us, the death of someone close to us will be the biggest loss we face.
If you provide care to a friend or family member with dementia, you are entitled to have a Carer’s Assessment. This is a process where your Local Authority or Local Council Social Services assess your individual needs as a carer.
Dying is an individual and unique experience: everyone will experience it in their way and have their own needs. When someone is approaching the end of their life, there are common characteristics and changes that help us to know when a person is dying.
