Here at Ashgate Hospice, we are fortunate to have a small, experienced and dedicated team of Palliative Care Social Workers and volunteers to help our patients and their families cope with additional challenges they may be facing. The Social Work team specialises in working with adults and children who are at the end of their life, their families, those they are close to as well as their communities.
They help individuals and their families prepare for the end of their lives and provide post-bereavement care for those who need more specialist support.
Alongside emotional support, the Social Work team also offers a range of practical help and signposting, help with housing, debt, welfare benefits, practical help at home, liaising with schools or employers, and more. They often work with groups as well as individuals and support children, young people, and their parents/carers too.
If you, or someone you know, is affected by life-limiting illness and need support, please contact the Supportive Care Service at Ashgate on 01246 568801 (Mon-Fri 9am to 5pm) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
