LifeCircle Australia provides practical and emotional support for people who are caring

Every day, thousands of Australians are caring for a loved one through the last stages of life. Not medical professionals. Ordinary people. Sons, daughters, mothers, fathers. Family and friends. If you’re one of them – or are considering it – welcome. It’s a wonderful thing you’re doing. We know it won’t always feel that way, though.

LifeCircle is here to support you, by bringing experience and information into one place. Here you can talk to an experienced guide, listen to other people’s stories, find resources to assist you, ask general questions or just read. Our goal is to help you have more time to share – when it really matters.

Find information

It can be hard to know how to care for someone who is dying. To help you, we’ve gathered useful information and links into one place.

Get personal support

All our guides have cared personally for people who have died. They can give you free one-on-one support, at a time that suits you.

Ask a question. Share your experience. Support someone. Join us in open, honest conversations about dying and the good and bad of caring.
