What is Hospice at Home?


download resource as pdf

Hospice at Home is a service that aims to support you and your carer at home/ residential home to help you achieve your preferred place of care.

The Hospice at Home service is provided seven days a week. The service is designed to offer blocks of care to those individuals in their last few weeks of life. The blocks are usually between two and four hours and in some circumstances the blocks can run sequentially to provide a dying patient with almost 24 hour care.

The district nurse will need to be your main contact or 'key worker' and the Hospice at Home team will work alongside them and any other healthcare professionals involved in your care. We are an additional service and do not replace any services you are already receiving.
