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.
Hospice at Home
Many people want to be cared for in their own home. This is where they feel safe and comfortable, and can spend precious time with their loved ones.
The Hospice at Home team support this choice and work 365 days a year to care for patients in their own home.
The Hospice at Home team work collaboratively with our wellbeing services and offer specialist care including the following:
- Holistic assessment of physical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs.
- Work with you and your family to develop personalised plans of care to achieve your goals and preferences.
- Practical advice, education and support and clinical interventions to make it possible for people to achieve their goals and preferences.
- Highly skilled nursing and therapy care and advice to manage symptoms such as pain and fatigue.
The Hospice at Home team also work closely with your doctor, community nurses and other care services.
How can I access Hospice at Home support?
Self- referrals can be made through our PCCC. Your doctor, community nurses and other healthcare professionals involved in your care can also refer to our services.
Once a referral has been received, a member of our team will contact you and your family to confirm where best to meet you to complete your initial assessment. 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.
We are delighted to have received funding for a bank of iPads which can be distributed to patients who may be isolated at home. These are available free of a charge for a six-month loan period and we will help the patient get set up and show them how to use it. As well as for personal use, these iPads can be used to view our physiotherapy videos online.
