Hospice at Home

Our Hospice at Home service gives choice when it matters to the many people who choose to die peacefully and with dignity in their own home, among those who are important to them.

Fear of distressing symptoms and worries about the physical and emotional demands placed on carers, relatives or friends, can often result in people going into hospital to die.

Our Hospice at Home service is here to enable high quality person-centered end of life care in the home, avoid hospital admission and facilitate hospital discharge.

The team also provides “crisis management” for patients who have deteriorated and are without care packages, and those in Residential/Nursing homes who were referred to Specialist Palliative Care services for complex care/treatment needs. They can also give specialised advice on symptom control, management of distress, and spiritual and psychological support.

Referrals to the service can be made by any Health/Social Care professional following consent of the patient and family, GP or Community Nurse.

The service is available 365 days a year and offers specialised advice and planned, supportive nursing visits on a 24 hour basis from experienced, qualified Nurses and Health Care Support Workers.
