Social Work

social work 1 webSocial work is an essential role in the delivery of outstanding specialist palliative care and with the support of Macmillan, Woking and Sam Beare Hospices are able to delivery this valuable service to our patients and families.

The aim of palliative care social work is to continue to see people and families as a whole rather than as an individual with a set of specific problems to solve. Our social worker seeks to understand the connections of life and support individuals or someone close to them as they come to terms with the changes in their life, and support them to continue to live as they choose.

Our Social Worker can offer a wide variety of support to both patients and their families. This support can include:

Working out who to contact or where to access funding can be confusing when there is so much going on, and our social worker is here to help. Our Social Worker will work in partnership with you using her skills, knowledge and expertise to ensure you get the support you need.
