Support for families

Your family may need support and we can help them too. We can offer practical, emotional and spiritual support to the family members of people being cared for at the hospice.

Facilities for visitors

To find out about visitor facilities, please discuss this with your nurse or the hospice staff.

Complementary therapies

Sessions available by appointment.

Our wide range of safe and natural complementary therapies do not replace traditional care, but patients often comment on their relaxing qualities and overall benefits.

Therapies include: aromatherapy, hypnotherapy, reflexology, reiki and relaxation.

Complementary therapy sessions are open to carers too.

Emotional support

Our social workers are trained and experienced in helping people adjust to changes in circumstances. They will get to know your family including children or grandchildren and focus on how to best support them and help them manage emotional difficulties.

We have a room designed and equipped for those who need help in coming to terms with any emotional problems they may be experiencing.

Appointments for one-to-one support can be arranged.

Bereavement support for families

We also provide bereavement support for families (including children) dealing with the loss of someone close.

How to get support for families
