Dealing with all the practicalities of adjusting to a life-limiting illness can be stressful.  If you are feeling isolated or just fancy a chat with someone over a cup of tea, someone from our team may visit you in your home to provide you with companionship and sometimes some time off for your carer/s.  We can also work with you to enable you to live independently and stay active and mobile for longer. 

If you are worried about money and how your illness might affect your finances, especially if you or your carers find you need to give up paid work and/or have gained additional expenses, you can talk things through with us.  We can provide you with information and advice about the benefits and other financial assistance that you may be entitled to and help you to apply.  We can also provide information about Wills, lasting Powers of Attorney and other practical matters such as setting up third party access on bank accounts.  

If you are fit enough to travel, you can join our Wellbeing Programme and through our support groups meet other people in a similar position.  Together you'll be able to share experiences and tips on how to ensure you can continue to live independently.
