Supporting carers of someone with a life-limiting illness


Calvary Health Care Bethlehem is running two programs to support carers of someone with a life-limiting illness in their caring role and beyond.

Caring 'till the end: a carer perspective

This two-part online workshop enables carers to participate from the comfort of their own home.  

Session 1 - The carer journey 
Thursday 26 October 10:30am - 12:30pm
Focuses on the carer experience: the emotions, issues to consider and where to find support.

Session 2 - Understanding death and dying
Thursday 2 November 10.30am - 12:30pm
Gently explores what happens during the process of dying with an emphasis on how carers can look after themselves during this time.

Access to support following sessions is available should carers wish.
