There are appointments available on with our specialist palliative care social workers on Tuesday 6th April. If you need advice, or just to talk through some ideas, please call us.

Jonathan is a palliative care social worker. He works with people diagnosed with a life limiting illness, their families and carers, providing a wide range of emotional support, and the opportunity to discuss why planning ahead helps.  Jonathan provides bereavement support, and finds that support prior to death can have a positive impact on the loss and grief experienced. He also provides supervision to colleagues and other professionals and likes working with people who struggle with overthinking.  Jonathan also has current personal experience of a relative living with Alzheimer’s.

Sarah is a social worker, working predominantly with people living with dementia and their families and carers. Sarah works within a palliative dementia care setting within a community hospice and can help you ensure a person’s wishes and choices are central to their support now and in the future.
