Social & Financial Support

St Mary’s Hospice provides all services free of charge to patients and carers.

Our Hospice Social Worker supports patients and families who may have existing care provision, or may require it in the future. They support the assessment of social and health care needs, working closely with other Social Workers and health care professionals.

Our Social Worker will provide information and can signpost you to other services for support and advice. This could include how social and health care is funded (including personal budgets and direct payments), residential and nursing home care and welfare rights.

Furness Carers:

We work closely with Furness Carers, who provide support to carers in the Furness area. Furness Carers provide a drop-in service at the hospice.
