Family Support

There can be times during the course of a life-limiting illness when individual support for patients’ families may be needed.

At Bury Hospice, all carers and family members/friends can access family support, and where those needs cannot be met within the hospice, we are able to signpost or refer to outside agencies if required.

To support families we have a Hospice Liaison service, which works across the community to support patients, families, professionals, and acts as a link between the Hospice and other healthcare settings across Bury. By increasing knowledge about Hospice services, supporting timely access to our services and delivering Hospice care in other care settings this role enables us to be there for more people when it matters the most.

Below is a summary of some of the family support services that are available at Bury Hospice.

Bereavement Support

At the Hospice we have an experience Bereavement Support team who are available to offer grief counselling, support groups and advice. For more information visit our Bereavement Services Page.

Complementary Therapy

Our Complementary Therapy Coordinator provides holistic therapies to support patients and their families. Our focus as a Hospice is to treat the whole person – body, mind and soul. The therapies include reflexology, Reiki, Indian Head Massage and relation therapy.

Spiritual Care

Our chaplains are able to offer support to all patients and their families and friends irrespective of faith or belief. Many people who have no religious beliefs may find it helpful to have someone with whom to discuss their hopes, fears and worries. Visit our Spiritual Care page for more information

The Living Well Centre

The Living Well Centre is an accessible space for our community, providing a central hub for the delivery of supportive and palliative care services, reaching more people by offering a variety of services.
