Support for families
Facilities for visitors
To find out about visitor facilities, please discuss this with your nurse or the hospice staff.
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.
Complementary therapy sessions are open to carers too.
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
Services are open to the family members of patients who have received care from the hospice or the Marie Curie Nursing Service.
