Family & Carers Wellbeing
We know that caring for a loved one can be very rewarding, but we understand it can also be demanding of your time and sometimes overwhelming.
Family members, friends and carers of St Barnabas Hospice patients can make use of our counselling, spiritual care and bereavement support. Click here to find out more about these services.
Take a look below at further support available to carers.
To find out what services are available in your area, please call our Palliative Care Coordination Centre on 0300 020 0694.
A carer is someone who provides care and support to a family member or friend, who is unable to do tasks such as washing, dressing, taking medication, attending appointments etc.
For some, taking on a caring role can be sudden, for others caring responsibilities can grow gradually over time. The amount and type of support that carers provide can vary considerably.
We work collaboratively with Carers First to offer patients, their family members and carers support where and when they need it. They can also help with emergency carers plans if needed.
