Do you want to make a real difference every day at work?

Are you the right person to complete our the Hospice at Home team?

The Hospice at Home Team support people who wish to spend their last days in their own home. We provide symptom control and psychological and emotional support to not only the patient but also to their loved ones who are caring for them. Due to internal promotions we are looking for registered nurses to join our team. With support from the Hospice at Home Sister you would be responsible for planning and managing care for patients wishing to die at home.

We don’t pretend this is an easy job, but it is incredibly rewarding. You will have support from within your team and from clinical supervision to help deal with the difficult times. On the positive side you will finish every shift knowing that you have made a huge difference to every patient that you have visited.

We are a welcoming and inclusive team.  We offer free parking on site, access to freshly cooked food at your mealtimes, free uniforms, access to complementary therapies, meaningful annual appraisals and encouragement to personally develop. Our education department provide teaching sessions which we would support you to attend and we also encourage attendance at external training events that would be useful to your role. You may be able to continue your current NHS pension membership.

To be successful in this role you will need to be a registered nurse with a passion for palliative care, have excellent communication skills, and a desire to work in the community. Community and/or palliative care experience would be an advantage.

Rowcroft Hospice is an independent charity that provides comfort, support and specialist care to over 2,000 patients and their loved ones across South Devon each year.  Our Vision is to make every day the best it can be for all patients, and their families, living with life-limiting illnesses in South Devon.
