Supporting the supporters

We support families and carers, enabling them to find time and space for themselves and learn practical ways of coping with being a carer.

Carer's Programme

Our Carers' Programme provides support for you as a carer of one of our patients. This 7 session programme is designed to help you, as a carer, to cope with any worries or pressures that you are facing. It will also give you useful advice and information, and provide an informal environment where you can meet other carers and share experiences with each other.

Carers' Clinics

Our Carers' Clinics are held on various days at the Beacon Centre. We offer a range of complementary therapies which can help aid relaxation and wellbeing, improve sleep, lower stress and anxiety levels, and ease muscular aches and pains. These include; relaxing massage, Indian Head Massage, natural life facial massage and energy healing. Perfect for carers who are feeling stressed, worried or tense.

Carer Therapies

Many of our Living Well activities are aimed at both patients and their carers or family members to attend together. Some offer help and advice with managing symptoms such as anxiety or fatigue, others offer a creative outlet for the feelings and emotions which can build when living with an advanced or terminal illness. We will provide guidance about which activities are appropriate for carers and relatives to attend.

Supporting children

Coming to terms with the illness and death of a loved one can be an overwhelming experience for adults and children alike. Children may struggle with uncertainties and fears which they can find difficult to cope with and hard to talk about.

This is where our dedicated Child and Family Support team can help

"The work his counsellor did with him, and giving the school advice on what strategies they could try, did massively help. Now he’s much more able to deal with things because he got the help in the early stages."

Please help us

All our services are free, but this is only possible due to the generosity of our amazing community. The Government/NHS only provide 25% of our costs, so we need to raise over £25,000 every day to provide our vital services.

Please donate what you can to help keep hospice care available to all those in our community who need us.
