Everyone we meet and care for has very individual needs. We will talk to you (and your family, where appropriate) to find out how we can best support you and which services you may need access to — be that at the hospice or wherever home is for you.
People cope differently with illness, and our team at the hospice will work together with you to explore how we can best support you. You might find it helpful to talk to someone outside of your circle of family and friends in confidence. We have a variety of people who can help.
This free emotional, social and spiritual support is available to you and to people who are important to you through our specially trained Family Support Team, which is made up of the companion coordinator, a qualified counsellor, a chaplain and a team of trained volunteers. We will work to support you all through the varied and often confusing feelings you may experience.
We understand that you may need more or less help at any given time, and we respect this, so the level of support we offer will be tailored to meet your needs.
If you would like help from the Family Support Team, please talk with your doctor, your Hospice Community Nurse Specialist or email us.
