Specialist palliative care and bereavement support

Clinical Services

Providing high quality, accessible care, advice and support

Our Services

Compton Care provides specialist palliative care and bereavement support for the people in our communities living with life limiting conditions. 

For over 40 years, we have been providing specialist palliative and end of life care to patients, and support for their families, helping them to navigate every aspect of life with a life limiting condition.  

Our care, whether delivered at our purpose-built facilities or at home, is tailored to individual needs, helping patients and their loved ones to feel safe and supported. Ensuring local people living with or caring for someone with a palliative diagnosis have access to the care and support they need remains our priority.

Providing specialist care and support

Our Aim

As a key provider of specialist palliative care, we aim to help people and their loved ones with:

  • the physical – helping patients deal with the physical changes brought about by their illness helping with symptom control and pain management.
  • the practical – supporting families to manage practical aspects including finances, housing, legal matters and making future care plans.
  • the emotional and spiritual – providing a safe space for patients’ families to express their thoughts, feelings and emotions throughout the duration of a person’s illness and after death.

As well as delivering high quality essential clinical care, we also offer a wide range of enhanced care services including psychological therapies, social care, respite and complementary therapies which exist to support patients and families through every aspect of their palliative care journey and beyond.

All services are available to patients aged 18 or over (and their families) living in Wolverhampton, parts of the Black Country (Walsall and Dudley), South Staffordshire and east Shropshire free of charge.
