I am a full-time carer for my terminally ill father. There’s only me together with the palliative care team, it’s tough, but I’m glad he’s home.

Welcome Louvaine to the forum.

That does sound tough.

We are here for you,


Welcome to the forum.

Are you getting any support from the palliative care team?
Are you aware of NHS Continuing Healthcare?

If there is anything you are not sure of, you can ask anything here, someone else will have met the same problems.

I supported all four of our elderly parents, all now passed away. If dad needs any equipment to help him, it can all be provided on loan, free of charge, by Social Services.

The more prepared you can be for what will happen, the easier it will be.

Thank you xxx

Do you and dad rent, or own the property where you live?
Is he receiving Attendance Allowance?
