When someone in your family has a serious illness you may not think of yourself as a carer, but the support you provide is vital. Providing this care can have a major impact on you and it takes time to adjust and find ways of managing. Kilbryde Hospice can support you to do this considering all your needs as a carer.
Kilbryde Hospice Carer Programme
Kilbryde Hospice Carer's Programme is aimed at anyone who is caring for someone with a life-limiting illness . The programme offers you as a carer a choice of sessions depending on your needs.
It will also give you the opportunity to meet with other carer's who are having similar experiences. Ideally, the course runs four times a year.
For further information please contact Clinical Admin/ Day Services at Kilbryde Hospice on 01355 202020/ firstname.lastname@example.org
We have a team of volunteer Carer Champions who are committed to supporting carers and relatives at Kilbryde Hospice. They ensure that carers are prioritised in every area of the organisation and act as a point of contact.
Support After Death
Though grieving is a natural response to the death of someone close to you, it can be very distressing. Some people need additional support to get through this difficult time. Often carers and relatives do not know where to go for support and advice after their relative has died.
Here at Kilbryde we hold a Bereavement Cuppa. This allows you to meet with people who are bereaved and perhaps are in a similar situation to you. The cuppa takes place on the first Thursday of each month from 2pm to 3pm in the Kilbryde Hospice Kafe. For further details please have a look on our social media or contact Clinical Admin on 01355 202020 Option 3.
Bereavement support can be accessed via St Andrews Hospice via these contact details. St Andrews Hospice - service available by self-referral via https://www.st-andrews-hospice.com/patients-and-families/patient-family-support/ or phone 01236 766951 to make a self-referral.
