Hospices

Hospices provide care for people from the point at which their illness is diagnosed as terminal to the end of their life, however long that may be. Hospice care places a high importance and value on dignity, respect and supporting the wishes of its patient and ensuring all their needs are met.

Care also extends to those people who are close to the patient, and into the bereavement period after the patient has died. They aim to feel more like a home than hospital and can provide more individual care in a gentler and calmer atmosphere than a hospital.

Hospices are run by a team of doctors, nurses, social workers, therapists, counsellors and trained volunteers.

Hospice care is a style of care rather than something that takes in a specific building and can provided for people at home, in a care home or in a hospital..
