Advice For Carers

We believe that support to family and friends is an important part of what we offer as a hospice team. You may wish to talk about what is happening from your perspective and to receive some support with this.


Share

When someone close to you becomes ill, it can be a distressing, frightening and lonely time, which leaves you with a sense of helplessness and loss of control. Family members may protect each other by not talking about what is happening, which can increase the sense of isolation.

You may also have questions about the person’s illness or treatment that you want to ask. We are very happy to answer these, providing we have the patient’s consent to discuss these matters with you.

Carers can also access our Family Services department which provides support.
