A life-limiting illness is any illness or condition which:

  • cannot be cured and
  • is likely to lead to someone’s death.

You might hear other terms like ‘terminal’ illness or diagnosis, which means the same thing.

Anyone can be diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, and we accept any aged person over 18 to come to Living Well.

There’s lots of examples of life-limiting illnesses, including:

  • frailty
  • advanced cancer
  • dementia (including Alzheimer’s)
  • kidney failure
  • lung disease
  • neurological diseases, like Parkinson’s
  • advanced heart disease.

This is not an exhaustive list and you might have another life-limiting illness not listed. If you’re not sure if you have a life-limiting illness, please fill in the form and we’ll get back to you to discuss.

Frailty is a distinctive health condition related to ageing, describing a general decline in function and reserve across multiple body systems. People with frailty may struggle with independent living, find everyday tasks more difficult, and experience a gradual reduction in social interactions.

We have received special funding to trial a new programme for anyone in the catchment area with frailty. Each session of the six-week course will focus on an aspect of frailty: fatigue; exercise; nutrition; emotional health; planning ahead and financial support. You’ll be provided with top tips and ideas on living with frailty and after the six-week programme, there’s the option to dip in and out of the Living Well service.

You can sign up to any Living Well session if you are:

  • Over the age of 18
  • Live in our catchment area (Worthing, Adur, Arun and Henfield)
  • Have a life-limiting illness (see the definition above)
