End of life care is support for people who are approaching death. It helps them to live as well as possible until they die, and to die with dignity. It also includes support for their family or carers.
If your illness is incurable, palliative care will make you as comfortable as possible by controlling symptoms as well as providing psychological, social and spiritual support for you and your family or carers.
