The Grampians Regional Palliative Care Team commissioned a set of interviews and photographic portraits of people in the Grampians region who cared for a family member receiving palliative care at home.
Photographed while talking openly about their parents, partners, siblings and children, the ten participants reveal what it’s like to hear that there is nothing more the medical community can do for a member of their family. They discuss the impact that had on their family member in palliative care, and on themselves.
This set of ten photographic portraits with text reveals some of the joys as well as some of the challenges of caring for someone you love who is receiving palliative care. It also reveals how the participants deal with death, and with grief. They share the benefits and difficulties of looking after their family members at home, and acknowledge how the experience has changed them.
