We offer practical help and support to our patients
Our in-house Almoner is available to offer and signpost practical help and support to patients, their families and carers during what can be a challenging time in their lives to help alleviate the stress and frustration that many practical problems can cause when undergoing treatment for an illness or caring for a loved one.
Such assistance might involve
- Help with complex form filling, for example helping patients or their carers apply for Attendance Allowance, Carers Allowance, Blue Badge Applications and Personal Independence Payments
- Referring patients to Will writing specialists, solicitors or financial advisors who can offer guidance on finance related issues, trusts, legacies and lasting powers of attorney
- Advising patients with housing or accommodation problems and liaising with a landlord or a Local Authority in order to resolve the issues that are causing concern
- Helping patients organise home care visits by other professional service providers.
Practical assistance can be offered online, via telephone or at Butterfly House.
