It’s the small things that make the biggest difference, like they take the time to remember your name; it’s that level of personal care that really matters. Before Christine’s passing I didn’t know a single person at the charity but they have welcomed me with open arms. You never have to feel like you are alone; it’s just like being a part of one big family.
When someone is diagnosed with a terminal or life-limiting illness it affects the entire family. St Barnabas is there for the patient, but is also a vital source of support and comfort to family members and loved ones.
Our team will offer advice around welfare and benefits, psychological support, pre-bereavement and bereavement counselling, spiritual support and we also provide complementary therapies to improve your wellbeing.
