Hospice at Home Team
Many of our patients choose to spend their last days at home. Our Hospice at Home Team can offer you the support and care you need.
Our experienced Registered Nurses and Senior Healthcare Assistants are specially trained in palliative care, particularly in the care of those in the last days of life.
Support 24 Hours a Day
We’ll support you and your family 24 hours a day either by phone or with a face to face visit, working closely with your GP, district nurses and other health and social care professionals. Together, we’ll help to manage your symptoms, such as effective pain relief if you need it. Where possible we can place a member of staff in the home for a period of time during the day or night. As a 24 hour service there is always someone who knows about you and your family at the end of the phone who may be able to arrange a nurse to visit or just to talk.
As we are a small service we are unable to offer regular visits for personal care but will provide support to the care agency that provides you with your ‘care package’.
Our Hospice at Home nurses work with patients in their own homes, as well as those in residential or care homes.
