Thanks to support from our community, all of our care was provided free of charge to patients, families and carers across 300 square miles of South Devon. We were there for patients day and night, throughout the year:
2,552 patients with life-limiting illness were cared for by Rowcroft in their own homes, in the community and at our Inpatient Unit in Torquay.
1,598 patients were supported by our Community Team – who provided expert advice and support to help patients maintain their independence and wellbeing.
439 patients were able to spend the final weeks of their lives at home, cared for day and night by our Hospice at Home Team.
1,345 health and social care professionals enhanced their knowledge on the delivery of palliative care by attending Rowcroft-run educational events and courses.
80% of our patients were cared for in their own homes, as per their wishes.
Over the last year, our community and Hospice at Home teams conducted a total of 9,526 visits and 12,117 calls to patients referred to us.
