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.
The team is currently made up of registered social workers, qualified counsellors and volunteers.
We work with patients, carers, and family members 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. If you wish to contact the Family Support Team you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the main reception on 0113 2185500.
