Our social worker, Esther Olivier, is on hand at the Hospice to offer advice and support, as well as point you in the right direction of the various community support groups and care agencies that you may need to speak to.

Social work support

Major illness impacts on many aspects of life, as it can come along when we are least expecting it. Our social worker, Esther Olivier, is based at the hospice and is able to provide information and advice, as well as signpost you to community services and care agencies that can provide practical support and assistance to support patients and their families at home.

In some situations, Esther will work with you to explore appropriate options for future care.

We support carers and family members as much as possible. There is a carers support group that meet every month for support, advice and information. This gives an opportunity for carers to meet others in the same caring role and to share experiences.

We are always here to support patients, carers, families and friends throughout their journey and will support with bereavement and family issues.
