Practical and emotional support

Our caring team is here to help you with any concerns or worries you may have as a result of your loved one’s illness.

Your practical and emotional needs are as important to us as those of our patients. We have a range of support on offer to help you through this difficult time.

Practical support

We have our own team of social workers who can advise you about practical questions you may have as well as advocate on your behalf.

Our social workers can give advice about; financial and legal matters, care packages at home, nursing homes and residential homes, and social services and other agencies.

Emotional and spiritual support

Our social workers and trained volunteers can also provide counselling to help you deal with the range of emotions you may be experiencing.

For some, spirituality is a very important part of living with an incurable illness. Our chaplaincy service can provide spiritual support to those who would like to receive it, whether they have a religion or not and whatever faith they follow.

We have a Sanctuary room at both of our hospices which patients and their friends and relatives are welcome to use to pray or spend time in quiet contemplation.
