LifeCircle is here to support you

Every day, thousands of Australians are caring for a loved one who is dying. 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 expert 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.

NOTE: LifeCircle Australia is not aligned or affiliated with LifeCircle Switzerland, assisted dying or euthanasia.
LifeCircle Australia designs and delivers solutions to support people who are caring for someone at the end of life.
