Caring for you

Support for you

What our family support team can offer you

Our family support team knows and understands the impact of a life-limiting illness on you and on the people closest to you. It’s why, over the years, they have developed a broad range of services to help people at what’s always a tough time.

When you’re a patient, the team can offer experienced, practical social worker support, and advice around your rights and entitlements. They offer an emotional and psychological support service, giving you the time and space to talk about your concerns when your circumstances are changing, helping you to find ways of coping.

Our team can talk to you about welfare benefits, to help you and your family if you’re worried about how your family will cope in new and often unexpected circumstances.

The team also offers support around spirituality, which is often a focus for people when they are approaching the end of their life.


Prospect Hospice is committed to promoting the wellbeing of all adults and children who use our services and ensuring that they live a life that is free from harm, abuse and neglect. We work in an open and transparent way and encourage staff, volunteers, patients and families to raise any safeguarding concerns.
