Family support services

Woodlands Hospice Family Support Team has a team of qualified and experienced workers who understand that when someone is very ill, everyone in the family can be affected. In the hospice, care extends beyond the treatment of physical symptoms and considers the emotional and social needs of patients, families, their friends and carers. We are helped to deliver this service by a team of skilled and trained volunteers.

Why are we here?

We can help anyone who is connected to a patient - the patient’s family, children and young people, friends and carers.

What kind of Help can the Family Support Team offer?

We can offer many kinds of help and our approach is person-centred tailored to the individual's needs.

The team helps with:

  • Emotional issues
  • Practical matters
  • Carer support
  • Planning for the future
  • Stress
  • Money worries and legal issues
  • Fear
  • Grief and loss
  • Religious or spiritual questions
  • Family Matters
  • Social activities
