Our Palliative Care Response Team offers the same high standard of nursing and compassionate care that we offer in our Hospice; making the patient feel more comfortable and at ease while in familiar surroundings.
We provide a 24-hour palliative and end-of-life care telephone service to give advice to people with palliative care needs and their families, as well as to healthcare professionals who need guidance and support on delivering palliative care.
Our aim is to help our patients remain as independent as possible. We offer a range of services to help build confidence and self-esteem, to ensure our patients maintain a good quality of life while managing their condition.
We understand that it can be overwhelming when a person is diagnosed with a life-limiting condition. Our Patient & Family Support Team is here to support patients and their loved ones through this difficult time.
Our specialist palliative care physiotherapists play a key role in improving our patients’ quality of life, helping to optimise their mobility and wellbeing and to live as independently and fully as possible.
We rely on the generosity of our amazing community, whose support enables us to provide the best possible end-of-life care for local people. It costs £12 million every year to keep our Hospice running - through charitable support we need to raise over 50% of the funds required annually to provide our services free of charge, 365 days a year, to the people who need us most.
We’ve never needed you, our wonderful supporters, more than we need you today. Please donate what you can to help keep hospice care available for those in desperate need.
