CARING TIL THE END TWO PART PROGRAM; Sunshine May 8 & 15

This two-part series of workshops for carers, by Carers Victoria in partnership with Mercy Palliative Care, looks in detail at palliative care from the carer perspective and includes information and discussion.

SESSION 1 PALLIATIVE CARE AND YOU
The palliative care journey can produce complex relationship issues and tasks even in the closest of families. This workshop will help you, the carer, recognise the difficulties and equip you with some coping strategies.

Key messages
• One illness, two journeys
• Family and friends
• Questions to think about

SESSION 2 END OF LIFE
This workshop builds on part I and explores our current attitudes to death and the practical matters associated with the actual dying process. It also looks at self-care for the carer during this challenging time.

Key messages
• Death, a hidden experience
• What you can expect as someone dies
• Looking after yourself during the end-of-life stage
