Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice

Family support

The family support service at The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice offers care, advice, and support, for adults, children, and young people living with the impact of a life limiting, or life shortening illness.

When you are seriously ill you may have questions or concerns which can be just as worrying as the physical symptoms.

The chaplaincy service at the hospice provides spiritual, religious and psychological support to patients and family members.

This service is available for people of faith or no faith who would like to talk about what matters to them.

Providing support to families and carers, through a patient’s illness and afterwards, is key to the hospice’s commitment to looking after the whole family, and our team is here to provide support to everyone.

Our counsellors, chaplains, social workers, therapists, support workers and volunteers provide practical, emotional and spiritual support.

We offer one-to-one support and counselling both in the hospice and at home.

We have a number of bereavement support groups that run throughout the year.

We provide help for carers by offering The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice volunteer befriender service which gives carers a few hours respite from their duties.

We also provide support for children and young people, through our Butterfly Service.
