As part of Hospice Care Week, we are also recognising World Mental Health Day today.

Our Family Support Team at St Luke’s provides a variety of counselling dependent on your specific circumstances.  This also extends to family members and carers as we understand that this may be a traumatic time for those close to you. We welcome people of all ages including children and young people and people from all beliefs and backgrounds.

Patients, relatives and bereaved people may want to use counselling:

  • To work through difficult emotions like anger, guilt or depression
  • To enable decision making amidst all the emotional upset
  • To help cope with physical reactions like sleeping problems, tiredness, lack of concentration, anxiety and panic attacks
  • To understand and adjust to changed family roles and dynamics
  • To explore spiritual or religious issues

People who are not yet in contact with St Luke’s Hospice but are coping with life-threatening or life limiting illness in their family are also welcome to access our counselling service. You can contact us.

If Alsager is closer for you, our Alsager Outreach Service runs a support group and a bereavement group.

Hospice Care Week – Here for you.
