Supporting the people close to our patients is an important part of Hospiscare’s work. And that support doesn’t stop when a patient dies… We’re here for you for as long as you need us.
We recognise that the type of support people need is as individual as they are – and they will need it at different times. The Supportive Care Team at Hospiscare aim to offer additional support as and when you need that. Ways we can help include:
- A confidential 1:1 telephone listening service with our trained volunteers – speaking to somebody who is not connected to family or friends allows for a different kind of conversation that can help the grieving process
- Linking you in with one of our local volunteer-led support groups with the view to meeting others who are also grieving
- A referral to one of our complementary therapist.
There are many more ways in which we can support you and your family – please get in touch with the Supportive Care Team on 01392 688008.
