Patient and Family Support Services
At Weldmar Hospicecare, we are proud to support family members and loved ones though what can be life’s most difficult journey.
Our Patient and Family Support Service is made up of a number of professionally qualified and specially trained support staff and volunteers. The service offers both emotional support and practical help or advice.
Find out here about the different ways that we provide support:
Specialist social work support
Specialist palliative care social workers staff provide patients and family members with opportunity to talk confidentially through fears, worries, concerns, hopes and wishes, and can offer a wide variety of support including sourcing practical help at home, accessing other services, advice around debt or income maintenance, help with housing, advocacy, and working with schools or employers.
They are also dedicated to caring for the carers – the loved ones who are the full time care givers for Weldmar patients at home. They organise coffee mornings for carers, and produce a quarterly newsletter, with lots of helpful tips and advice.Download the latest edition of our Carers Newsletter
