Caring to the End
A new resource to support unpaid carers
Surrey County Council, the NHS and partners have created a new website for carers who are caring for someone who is reaching the end of their life.
Called ‘Caring to the End’, the website brings together information you may need to know as a carer currently caring for someone with a terminal illness, from their diagnosis through to the end of their life.
Practical, legal and financial
The website offers practical, legal and financial information for those who are caring for a loved one, offers advice on coping with grief and where to go for support after caring for a loved one at end of life. There are sections offering tailored advice and guidance, including for parent carers and young carers.
SCC and the NHS worked with carers and former carers to get their input into the site.
Find it here: caringtotheend.org.
