Hospice at Home’s core and largest service is its nursing team which consists of Registered Nurses and Healthcare Assistants who are skilled in providing nursing care and support in the last year of life and at the end of life.
Hospice at Home also has additional clinical services. Care and support may be provided by one or a combination of the services so that a person’s needs may be more fully met. Services are free of charge to those who need them.
Care and support is individualised and aims to improve quality of life, facilitate a peaceful and dignified death and to support those who are bereaved. Hospice at Home’s clinicians work closely with other health, social care and voluntary organisations who may also be involved in a person’s care.
Hospice at Home’s clinical service area covers a mixture of urban and rural communities, a region of approximately 1, 500 square miles throughout North and East Cumbria.
