Support for Families

Our Family Support team offers practical and emotional support to patients, families, and carers. The team consists of social workers, counsellors, support worker, and carer’s coordinator. They work out in the community, visiting people in their own homes, as well as in our Inpatient Unit.

The support they offer is based on your individual needs and can include:

  • Counselling
  • Advocacy
  • Access to services including social care and care packages
  • Signposting to respite care and financial and welfare advice
  • Support for carers

Jenny Watmore-Eve, Social Worker said: “We are here for both patients and families and we want to help you access the right support and services, so you can continue to be a family and live well together. We offer both face to face support and we will regularly call you to make sure you are doing OK, offering you the opportunity to unload, to be honest, and open about your feelings.”
