Social Work Services at City Hospice

Social work services are available to all individuals, their carers and family who are under the care of City Hospice.

How can City Hospice Social Work support you?

The social worker can support you, your carers and family in the following ways:

  • Provide social work advice, guidance and support on practical and some financial matters (though most of these are dealt with by our Welfare Rights Team)
  • Assistance in accessing personal and domestic care to enable you to remain independent in your home or with a member of your family/carer, ensuring agreed care is in place to support a return home if you have been in hospital.
  • Identify and ‘signpost’ supportive services (statutory and voluntary) within your own community
  • Help to reduce social isolation and exclusion (e.g. by identifying appropriate befriending/ activity organisations)
  • Supporting the needs of carers (e.g. by accessing respite/ sitting services)
  • Liaise with other agencies, e.g. housing, Telecare, Care and Repair, Meals on Wheels etc.
  • Facilitate help with legal matters, e.g. provision of the City Hospice Freewill scheme, using four local solicitors and assistance with or helping access to Lasting Power of Attorney, General Power of Attorney, Court of Protection, Advance Decisions and Advance Care Planning (in conjunction with the City Hospice Clinical Nurse Specialists)
