Support for families, friends, and carers

There is no right way to feel when experiencing a loss or helping someone through the voluntary assisted dying process. Asking for help is okay.

Responding to the person's request

Talking about death with family, friends, or people you care for can be challenging. Even if you don’t agree with a person’s decision to access voluntary assisted dying, you still may be able to give them support.

Supporting the person

If your family member, friend or person you care for is deciding whether to access voluntary assisted dying, there are many ways you can offer support.
