What is a Hospice?
A hospice cares for the whole person, aiming to meet all of their needs – physical, emotional, social and spiritual, and also to provide support for their carer/s and loved ones. Whether care is given in a patient’s own home, an inpatient unit or day care hospice, a specialist team of health care professionals will provide a range of services tailored to meet the individual needs of the patient and their family. Hospices care for children or adults who have cancer and other life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses.
Within a hospice you will find a range of services – from pain control, symptom relief, skilled nursing care, counselling, complementary therapies, spiritual care, art, music, physiotherapy, reminiscence, beauty treatments and bereavement support.
