Service summary

Losing someone close to you can be devastating and if you have been caring for that person the loss can seem even greater.

How you cope with the death of the person you cared for is a very personal thing. There is no right or wrong way to feel following a death but the Carers UK website may be able to offer some support. 

The Carers UK website includes information about:
- emotional support
- registering a death
- arranging a funeral
- dealing with the deceased person's affairs
- your benefits
