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. The service is led and co-ordinated by Andrew Wade, a qualified social worker holding a degree and diploma in Social work (BA, DipSW) and is a registered social worker with Social Care Wales (Gofal Cymdeithasol Cymru).
Our social worker works closely with Cardiff Council and voluntary agencies to help arrange formal Care Packages, sitting services or respite care for your family. As well as inform/liaise about Direct Payments if you want more choices about the care provided. If you want to pay privately, we can ‘signpost’ care agencies and explain more about Continuing Health Care.
In addition, our services can also help solve housing problems, and arrange for Meals on Wheels, and Community Alarms as needed. As well as advice on a range of practical, legal, transport leisure, educational activities, and funeral information. We can give advice and guidance concerning admission to residential/nursing homes.
City Hospice is able to offer our patients a free Will writing service, paid for by City Hospice. We are pleased to be working with four of Cardiff’s top solicitors to provide this service: Wendy Hopkins Family Law, Watkins & Gunn, Foleys and HCB Solicitors.
We can also advise/assist you in applying for Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA).
