There are lots of worries people with life-limiting conditions and their families might experience. These can include concerns about money and employment. To ease the burden, at Primrose Hospice we are not just able to help with emotional support and healthcare but also with more practical issues.
Family Support and the Benefits Adviser offers patients advice, information and representation as needed. It is designed to be flexible to accommodate an individual client’s needs which includes giving advice at home, in the hospice or over the telephone.
Patients can be supported through benefits, housing, employment, debt and bereavement issues. The Benefits Adviser can also provide assistance and advice on funerals and probate.
An assessment can be carried out to ensure that the patient is receiving all the benefits they are entitled to. The Benefits Adviser is also on hand to assist with applications to local and national charitable institutions.
