Supporting your psychological, emotional and spiritual wellbeing
Living with a terminal or life-limiting illness can be difficult to process and come to terms with; it is a different experience for everyone.
Here at St Clare, we are here to walk alongside you throughout your journey, supporting you to work through any concerns, worries, difficult feelings or experiences you may be wishing to address.
Our multidisciplinary Patient & Family Support Team of counsellors, social workers, a chaplain and local faith leaders are here to listen and support you at your own pace.
Helping you with practical arrangements
There may be practical considerations and arrangements that you wish to address upon receiving the diagnosis of a terminal or life-limiting illness, or as you approach later life and older age.
Our social workers can assist and guide you through things like welfare and financial services, housing, community services available to you, considerations for your family and children, writing a Will, planning a funeral, and more.
Connecting local people together with Compassionate Neighbours
Our Compassionate Neighbours project aims to connect local people together to aim to prevent loneliness and social isolation amongst those who are living with a life-limiting illness or frailty due to older age.
