St. Luke's Hospice recognises the particular strain and often varied support needs of family or friends who are caring for someone with a life threatening life limiting illness at home. Carers can be anyone living with the responsibility of caring in this way.
Every Hospice service is committed to assessing the needs of carers individually and as part of the care set up within their homes. Carers remain included in care at the level they choose.
To ensure this happens we have a Carer’s Co-ordinator who can offer you a ‘Carers Assessment’, advice and support. We can offer a variety of services, practical support, financial advice and training that will help you in your caring role, as well as emotional support to help with your own well-being. You can make contact by calling: 01268 524973 ext 246 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
