Having a serious illness or caring for someone who is ill brings with it a range of new challenges. Working as part of the multi-disciplinary team in the Hospice, the family support team has the experience, knowledge and counselling skills to help and advise you on how to address these challenges.
We have registered social workers and qualified counsellors in the team supported by a discharge support worker and several volunteers.
We work with patients, their carers, families, friends and carers by offering practical and emotional support.
St Gemma’s Hospice works with all people, no matter what their ethnicity, faith, age, disability, gender or sexuality and are available Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm both in the Hospice and for home visits. You can refer yourself by ringing 0113 218 5500 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Evening meetings can be arranged by prior appointment.
