Social work and bereavement care
Our social work, chaplaincy and bereavement care team play a vital role in supporting patients, their carers and families with psychological, social and spiritual support.
Our social workers also provide advocacy and advice on practical and financial matters supporting patients in the Hospice and at home. The team includes a bereavement service delivered by specially trained volunteers.
Our chaplain and a group of dedicated volunteers offer spiritual and religious care and support.
"The care and support offered by the Hospice continues after the death of a loved one, the counselling offered to me and my son has been wonderful and of huge benefit to us. We attend the parent and children group, this is particularly beneficial for my son; it is one of the few places, he can come to and not feel special".
