This guide is about enabling people who want to die at home to do so and improving the quality of care they receive. In the context of this guide, ‘home’ means the place where a person usually lives. This includes ‘extra care’, sheltered housing accommodation and tenancy-based accommodation such as supported living, but not care homes. The guide is aimed at practitioners and managers supporting people with end of life care needs across the health, social care and housing sectors.
