Our Bury Hospice Outreach team who have extensive knowledge and skills in palliative care, provide support to patients and their families in their own home through the provision of education, personal, practical and emotional support for short periods of time. During our assessments we may also signpost patients and their families to other services. Where appropriate we may also refer to other care providers for ongoing support.
Bereavement/family support is offered to any family member or friend of someone who has died in the care of any of the Hospice services. Bereavement support is offered on a one-to-one basis either at the hospice in a quiet, calm and private environment or, in some circumstances in your own home. Telephone support is also available.
