In partnership with PCA and PCWA, PCNSW is pleased to launch its new Carer Booklet – Palliative Caring. This is a comprehensive resource for carers that you can download from our website.

Caring for someone as they approach the end of their life can be both rewarding and demanding. For some carers it proves to be a privilege, strengthening relationships and giving them precious time and memories that they otherwise would not have had, for others it can be difficult and exhausting, and the role may not be a feasible one.

The booklet also explains the role of palliative care, and seeks to address the myths and misunderstandings that are commonly held.

It is hoped that this book will help to explain what caring involves so you are better equipped to make informed decisions which reflect your personal needs and circumstances. Rather than giving detailed medical or nursing information, it presents options to consider and references a range of services and supports that might be helpful.
