If your loved one is nearing the end of life

 Information for family, friends and carers

This page talks about end of life care. It can be helpful to think about this possibility in advance. But it can also be upsetting. This information is here for you when you feel ready.

Many people can live with liver damage or even get better. But if the damage becomes very severe, then their liver can no longer work properly. Sadly not everyone can have a liver transplant and there are not always enough donor livers for those who need one.

It can be difficult to talk or even think about this possibility. But people often find that planning ahead can give them some peace of mind. Talking to your loved one in advance can help to make sure that you know their wishes and preferences.

We have more information online about planning ahead here.
