Social Support

Social and community support can help you to manage longer. It can help you to feel more positive and less vulnerable. Many people value their independence but it is important to accept support. It is a good way to create a strong network.

It may be helpful to speak to someone else who has provided care for someone with a terminal illness. It is important to find the right people to be with you and support you.
