Supporting you and those close to you
We recognise the impact that living with a life-limiting illness can have on you and those close to you. We understand that life will change from the point of your diagnosis and recognise that this can be confusing, overwhelming and at times frightening.
Our team of palliative care social workers are here to help with any of the anxieties or concerns you and those close to you may have. Our role is to listen, understand your needs and provide you with the support, information and advice to ensure those needs are met.
This can include providing emotional and practical support, such as giving you advice on Lasting Powers of Attorney, Will writing and funeral planning, as well as signposting to relevant agencies if further assistance is required. We can also advocate on your behalf with financial and housing matters or with social services input. We provide our support online, over the phone, at our hospice in St John’s Wood or by visiting you at home.
