End-of-life Care Toolkits for Carers at Home

The toolkits are created with a Creative Commons licence which allows others to adapt and build upon the toolkit non-commercially, but must also acknowledge the original and be non-commercial.

The Helix Centre has a dedicated team working on long-term end-of-life care projects. We’ve previously co-designed the ReSPECT process and created Amber Care Plans, which aimed to bring advance care planning to the mainstream.

Our colleagues at Central North West London NHS Trust have anticipated problems for families, friends and volunteers including generalist clinicians, who may have to do more practically for the dying because of the COVID-19 crisis. There is an expectation that lay carers may have to do more than ever before over the coming weeks and months.

As a response, we have designed a series of toolkits with CNWL and Bangor University that can be used by any and all NHS Trusts, community teams, care homes and hospices who have identified a need for reliable, informed tools to support the needs of dying people and their carers.
