Specialist care and support for crisis intervention

Hospice to Home

The Hospice to Home service provides end-of-life care and support for patients and their carers in their current place of care.  If someone chooses to spend their final days at home, often surrounded by friends and family, this service offers the support to be able to do so.

Service description
Our team of Multi-Skilled Support Assistants provide practical hands on end-of-life care and support in the community, caring and supporting patients in their own home or other place of care.  Our skilled carers can provide round the clock care for up to 72 hours, helping to prevent avoidable admission to hospital.  This service supports people to spend their final days and hours at home, often surrounded by family and friends.

How to be referred
To be referred to any of our services please ask your GP or District Nurse for a referral.  For patients requiring the Hospice to Home service, it is likely your District Nurse will speak to you about the service when it is needed.

Service delivery
This service is delivered in the homes of our patients throughout the community.
