Hospice at Home
The Hospice at Home service supports patients in their last two weeks of life. The team provides practical support including personal hygiene, wound care, management of pressure areas and emotional care for patients, their carers and families.
“Initially the Hospice at Home healthcare support workers just visited for a couple of hours at a time to give my mum a break. As dad’s needs increased, they came more frequently and stayed late into the night if we needed. They just slotted into our everyday lives and became part of the family.
Having dad at home meant we could all be together with no restrictions. We shared special moments that wouldn’t have been possible without Hospice at Home.
You can’t begin to imagine how brilliant the team are at supporting patients and their families at such a traumatic time.”
