Our team of qualified nurses can offer regular telephone support to carers.
Carers are invited to a weekly Carers’ Drop-in at the Hospice every Wednesday between 10am and 12 noon. This is run by hospice volunteers with nurses available to answer questions or signpost to other services. The drop-in sessions are open to all carers known to the Hospice, not just those caring for a person with Dementia.
Referrals can be made to other services such as benefits adviser, social worker, counselling and our spiritual care and chaplaincy team.
For any referrals we make that are directly for your relative we would need to gain their consent.
If would like to access any of these services you can now call the Day Hospice number 016060 555681 and leave a message, a nurse will contact you to discuss further. Your relative that you are supporting does not have to be attending the Hospice for you to access our carers’ support.
