Family Support

St Leonard’s Family Support Team offers support to patients, their families and carers.  The team provides social work and chaplaincy support and bereavement care. 

Living with a life limiting illness can have an impact on many aspects of your life, whether you are the person with the illness, a family member or a close friend. A wide range of emotional responses might occur, including sadness, anger, fear, frustration and loneliness.

Practical and financial needs might have to be addressed and decisions taken. You may have difficulty in talking about these issues or struggle with thinking about your own needs at such a time. The Family Support Team is here to offer you support.
