Britain has an ageing population. The number of people aged over 64 is expected to grow to 15 million by 2040, meaning that more people will live with serious chronic illnesses and need end of life care.

Our Level 2 course in end of life care will give you the knowledge you need to perform your role as a care worker for people approaching the final stage of their lives. You will learn how to support and manage pain and discomfort, and gain insight into the impact of dementia on end of life care. You’ll also develop the compassionate skills needed for supporting family and friends with the loss and grief process.
