Things might seem a little overwhelming at first, and that's where your Compton Care partners can help.
Serious illness can impact on many aspects of your life, including areas that you wouldn't expect or necessarily think of yourself.
You might benefit from the support of our social work team, who'll partner with you to address practical issues or concerns that you may have around employment, home adaptations, benefits, housing, children and future care planning.
We can help with the things that might seem a little daunting at first, including applications for benefits and home adaptations, sourcing equipment and speaking with other care providers.
Your care partner can help to fill in forms and liaise with other healthcare providers on your behalf. We're here to take away the burden, and support you with the things that might not cross your mind.
Our social workers receive referrals from our inpatient unit, hospital consultants, GPs, MacMillan Nurses and District Nurses as well as our own Clinical Nurse Specialists, Occupational Therapists and staff in our day centre.
