Care in the Hospice
We understand that coming into the Hospice can be quite daunting, so we are happy to show you and your loved ones around beforehand, this may help you to feel more comfortable and give you the opportunity to ask more questions.
A common worry is that anyone who comes to a hospice will never go home again. Many patients choose to spend their last days with us because they know the care they will receive is outstanding. However, for some of our patients, they come to stay to help gain control of their symptoms or for a full assessment of the support that they require. They may only need to stay for a few days before going home again or may move to a nursing home for longer- term care.
Our specialists plan admissions based on the support that you require rather than how long you may have been on the waiting list. This means you may have to wait for a few days until a room is available. If you require urgent support, we can admit you over the weekend when we have availability.
Our ward nursing staff provide 24-hour nursing care and are well trained and experienced in providing you with the support you need.
