Families and Carers
Family Support Services are currently offered to patients, family members and carers at the Hospice.
The Family Support Team is made up of bereavement support workers and social workers who help people to deal with the emotional, psychological and practical aspects of incurable illnesses. This often involves providing support to people before and after the death of a relative or friend of a person who has received care from the Hospice.
Due to increasing demand for the service, in November 2015 we opened a dedicated Family Support Centre, based at our main site in Gosforth.
