Our Hospice at Home is a service specially designed and developed to extend hospice care into the community to support patients with palliative care needs.
Care is based on the Hospice philosophy which values each patient as an individual and recognises the need for family/carer support.
Hospice at Home operates as a partnership between Rossendale Hospice, Social Services and the local Primary care Trust. Care packages include social care, a combination of both social and nursing care, leading to enhanced specialist palliative nursing care, working closely with District Nurse, Macmillan Nurses GPs and Social Workers.
Our Hospice at Home service is led by a Senior Nurse Team Leader and Staff Nurse who manage our team of Health Care Assistants and ad-hoc Registered General Nurses. All staff are specially trained in caring for patients and their families/carers with a terminal illness.

5 Valley schools raised a record amount for Rossendale Hospice in an entrepreneurial challenge.
The event, jointly organised by Rossendale Hospice supported by Baldwins and Alder Grange School, is in its 5th year. The five schools raised a combined total of £7,130.64 in this year’s ‘Youth Enterprise Challenge’.
The contest, launched in October last year, lasted 16 weeks and saw Year 9 & 10 teams from Alder Grange, The Valley Leadership Academy, Whitworth High, Haslingden High and Tor View school, all come up with enterprising initiatives to generate as much income as possible to be donated to the hospice.
Thank you to all the schools who took part and for the hardwork and effort that went into their fundraising.
We are working as normally as possible in what is an unprecedented and ever changing situation, and following government guidelines to keep our patients, volunteers and staff safe. Our Hospice at Home Teams are continuing to provide essential care for patients in their own homes but unfortunately we've had to adapt some of our other service provision.
Our fundraising activities have also been impacted as we've had to cancel many upcoming events which we so rely on. We will be launching a campaign to run over the next 12 weeks, and while we appreciate these are the most difficult times for all, we would be most grateful if you are able to make a donation.
