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.

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.
