At Cornwall Hospice Care we understand that a loved one being diagnosed with a terminal illness is overwhelming and life changing. There are so many questions to ask and practical issues to deal with.

We recognise that being a full time carer to a loved one with terminal illness has many emotional and physical challenges and want to be here to help.

As part of Carers Week 2018 we approached 3 brave carers and their loved ones who we support, to ask if they’d share their stories with us and give their insights into how they cope.

``You’ve got to stay positive, you’ve got to take the best out of each day and you’ve still got to have a laugh and a joke and put the serious things to one side now and then. It’s that that helps you survive through this journey.``
