Caregiver’s Toolbox

These sessions provide free education and information for family/carers when their loved one is referred to Arohanui Hospice.

This education provides:
• A safe and non-threatening environment for families to gather and share experiences
• Empowerment of family/carers to have the confidence and knowledge around knowing what to expect when their loved one has a life limiting illness
• Practical information that assists the family in caring for their loved one at the end of life

The caregiver’s toolbox sessions are held over three afternoons and run regularly throughout the year.
