We are here for you for whenever you might need us

It’s estimated that for every individual facing a life-limiting or life-threatening condition, five family members are directly affected. At St Michael’s, our goal is to empower families to navigate every stage of their loved one’s journey. Our dedicated teams offer comprehensive psychological, emotional, and practical support.

What we do

Our Supportive Care professionals deliver a wide array of services, including pre and post-bereavement support, advocacy, coordination of services within the hospices and with other agencies, and hosting various support groups. We are here to provide holistic assistance, ensuring families feel supported and prepared throughout their challenging experiences.

How we can help you

  • We can enhance well-being and resilience, supporting family members in meeting the needs of their loved ones facing a terminal illness.
  • Facilitate support groups, connecting individuals in similar circumstances, reducing isolation, and nurturing resilience, self-esteem, and a sense of identity.
  • Offer advocacy to facilitate access to services from various health, education, and social care providers.
  • Extend continuous bereavement support for as long as necessary, aiding families in coping both individually and as a unit throughout the extended grieving process.
