Committed to carers: supporting carers of people at the end of life

Committed to carers: supporting carers of people at the end of life:
This report draws on the direct experiences of carers looking after someone at the end of life and Marie Curie’s expertise of caring for patients and their carers at this time. It shows how carers can have drastically different experiences of support and information. It also points to a lack of coordinated support for carers, which causes health breakdowns for carers and unnecessary and costly hospital admissions for them and their loved ones at end of life, preventing people from dying in their place of choice.
