When it comes to people who are nearing end of life, conversations with loved ones can be particularly difficult.

Whether you want to talk to partners and children about your own wishes, or you are unsure of how to start a conversation with a family member about what they want, the worry of upsetting someone can stop us from discussing things which we want people to be aware of or need to have answers to.

Life Support was created with the support of experts in End of Life and Palliative Care, and offers practical advice, personal experiences and tips to help you start conversations with your loved ones about the end of life. Much of the information was collected as part of a public engagement project on death and dying as well as additional stories from charities such as Marie Curie and Macmillan Cancer Support.
