When your caring role ends

    Looking after someone can become a large part of a carers' life. But, it is inevitable that at some point a caring role will change over time or come to an end.

    A caring role may come to an end because:

    • the person you cared for has recovered and no longer needs care.
    • the person you cared for can no longer be cared for at home.
    • the person you cared for has died.

    When this time comes, some people can find this difficult. Carers may experience feelings of guilt, empytiness and relief. There is support to help you through this difficult time:

    • Carers UK - help and advice about when caring ends.
    • Carers Trust - advice about getting back to work when your caring role ends.
    • Age UK - information about when a caring role changes.
    • Gov UK - advice about what you need to do when someone dies.
    • Cruse Bereavement Care supports people after the death of someone close.

    Organisations who support those with specific conditions provide tailored information about when a caring role ends:
