Family and carer support
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 big impact on you and it takes time to adjust and find ways of managing.
Our multidisciplinary team is specially trained to support the whole family, including children and teenagers.
Pilgrims Hospices, together with East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust (EKHUFT), have put together a helpful information pack for carers.
Hospice care does not end when the patient dies, we are there for you throughout the journey.
