Having a life-limiting illness changes both the person’s life and the lives of close family and loved ones, including husbands, wives or partners. Feelings can change frequently, not just triggering good and bad days, but often giving rise to several different emotions over a period of hours. People also often see changes occurring in their daily family roles and personal relationships, and may have to deal with the effects of the particular illness on their working lives and financial independence.
Emotions can vary markedly, and individuals will experience bouts of denial, anger, fear and frequently depression and even guilt. All these feelings are normal and result from the roller coaster ride of personal emotions associated with such circumstances.
Right at Home Tyneside is able to support you, and your loved ones, and care for you in your place of choice.
