What will I learn?

This period in a person’s life is without doubt the most sensitive and difficult to deal with in regards to emotional and physical strain it can put on the person, family and carers.

Statistics show that only half of people who preferred to die at home actually died at home. Hospices are ranked the highest in terms of the quality of care they can provide at this difficult time. This was closely followed by Care Homes and Hospitals.
