Patients

We support patients with a cancer diagnosis. We can be here for you from diagnosis and throughout your treatment and recovery.

Living with Cancer affects people in many ways. We are here to support you with an individual, tailor-made package to enhance your physical psychological and emotional wellbeing.

Carers / Friends & Family

Am I a carer?” is a frequently asked question. Carers are wives, husbands, partners, parents, sons, daughters, friends. You might not think of yourself as a carer, you might consider yourself as just looking after someone close to you; but if you are the main supporter of the patient then you are a carer.

The physical, emotional and psychological needs of carers can all too easily be overlooked. At The Mulberry Centre, we include the carers in the heart of our thinking – and try to ensure that as well as supporting the patient, we also support those who care for the patient.

When someone you care about is diagnosed with cancer, it can be very frightening. You may not be sure about the best way to help and support them. As well as addressing some of your own worries, The Mulberry Centre can give you some practical advice on how you can be helpful and supportive to the patient dealing with cancer.

Bereaved

We continue to support carers when they have become bereaved. Most of us welcome talking to others when a person who is close has died − and usually rely on friends and family. But friends and family can also be grieving, so it can help to have independent support; this is where The Mulberry Centre support the bereaved to cope with what is a very difficult time.
