HospiceCare North Northumberland

Caring for Life!

Our Hospice at Home Services

HospiceCare has a dedicated team of Nurses and Nursing Assistants who have the necessary skills and knowledge to care and support patients, carers and families in their own home, working in partnership with other health and social care providers. The timing of care and support delivered is tailored around the needs of the patient and family or carer.

So if a carer needs to have a decent nights sleep support is provided overnight, or during the day giving the carer ‘their’ time to go out and do what they want to do. Hospice at Home is also very much about supporting those who wish to die at home. This might involve providing care at short notice to facilitate rapid discharge from hospital, as well as being there when a patient’s condition begins to deteriorate. Our professional Hospice at Home team is supported by volunteers who also play a valuable role by providing complementary therapies in the home or simply being with the patient whilst their carer goes shopping or to the hairdresser.

  • Your wise council, comfort and understanding give renewed hope to so many, not just for the journey, but that human kindness is the greatest gift of all and can still be found. I will always be grateful.
