We offer two forms of support:

Talk to a Violet Guide

It's common to feel confused or overwhelmed when caring for a loved one who is terminally ill or frail, or grieving after their loss. Violet Guides provide free, unlimited support so you can talk about what's on your mind whenever you need to. And, because we know how important it is to connect with someone who understands, you'll always be supported by the same Guide.

Access digital resources and toolkits

We know that everyone needs different support depending on their situation. Violet's growing library of free resources and toolkits provide information and personal stories about communicating with medical and aged care staff, navigating family dynamics, what lies ahead and more. You can access them anytime, from anywhere.

What can I talk about on a Guided Support call?

Caring for a loved one who is terminally ill or frail is one the most demanding human experiences. It's common to feel confused, overwhelmed and doubtful.

Violet Guides have supported callers through family conflict, helped them prepare for difficult but necessary conversations and checked in on their mental and emotional well-being. It's a judgement-free space where you can talk about whatever's on your mind.
