Hospice at home puts the patient and those close to them first, enabling patients with advanced illness to be cared for where they feel most comfortable. Wherever possible, we believe that patients should be given a choice of where they would like to be cared for and for some individuals with a life-limiting and progressive illness that place is in their own home.
For this reason, our Hospice at Home service ensures you receive the same standard of palliative care as you would receive with our in-patient service. With a series of planned and responsive visits our Hospice at Home service provides practical nursing care and advice available 24 hours a day.
Our highly trained team offer help with personal care and are able to administer and manage medication, ensuring medical, emotional and spiritual needs are met whilst also providing some respite for carers.
Allowing people to spend their last days in the comfort and familiarity of their own home, whilst also receiving the necessary care that is needed is fundamental to our service, fulfilling patient’s wishes and enabling choice.
If you or a loved one would like to be referred to the Hospice at Home service, speak to your health/social care professional. This could be your GP, hospital professional or community nurse. They can then refer you to our service.
If you would like to speak to us before you request a referral, please call us on 023 9225 0001, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be happy to answer any questions you have about our Hospice at Home service and to provide guidance if you require it on how to obtain a referral from your healthcare professional.
The service is free to those with a life-limiting and progressive illness who require palliative and end- of-life care services in the last year of their life.
