How can I access Hospice at Home support?
Referrals are made through your doctor, community nurses and other healthcare professionals involved in your care.
Once a referral has been received, a nurse will visit you and your family to discuss what your needs are to remain at home. Your care will then be tailored to your specific needs. The amount of care that you receive may increase or decrease depending on how your needs change.
“The hospice at home team were a wonderful team of caring, thoughtful and professional nurses who helped me and my sister care for my mum in her final days. Mum always wanted to stay at home in her final days and thanks to the nurses she got that wish. Thank you all so much.”
