Meet Emily: The importance of patience

Meet Emily: The importance of patience

Emily was the main caregiver for her Dad as he was approaching the end of his life, with the support of hospice services.

She shared with us the privilege of caring for him but also the need for carers to take time out for themselves and ensure they have good support in place.

Emily is also very clear that death should be talked about openly, as she saw first hand the benefits of approaching the end of life honestly and together with her father.

Her experience has inspired her to turn her focus to a career in caring, which is an unexpected outcome from her time caring for her Dad.
