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.
