Rowans Hospice provides specialist end of life Hospice care and support to patients with progressive and life-limiting illnesses resident in Portsmouth and South East Hampshire, as well as offering support for their relatives and carers.
Each year, the Charity supports more than 10,000 people during illness and through to bereavement. Rowans Hospice offers a haven for rest and recuperation, as well as providing a space where families can enjoy special moments and create precious memories together.
Rowans Hospice services are given completely without charge and this is only made possible by the ongoing support and kindness from the local community. At the heart of everything the Charity does is compassion, kindness and understanding.
- In-Patient Unit– the care given across all Rowans Hospice services is about helping people live every moment to the fullest in comfort and dignity. The team works in close partnership with community nurses and NHS partners to support a patient’s choice in relation to where they may want to be cared for. The focus on the In-Patient Unit is about treating the person rather than the illness, and improving quality of life for as long as that may be.
- Hospice at Home– Wherever possible, the Rowans Hospice believes in giving people a choice in their care, including where they may wish to be cared for. Even though most people feel very much at home in the Hospice itself, some people prefer to be cared for in their own home. The Hospice at Home service offers end of life care in the home and is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and patients remain in familiar surroundings supported by their loved ones and the Hospice at Home team.
- Living Well Centre– Rowans Living Well Centre supports people in Portsmouth and South East Hampshire who are living with a life-limiting and progressive illness. The Centre supports people aged 18 and above, regardless of diagnosis, and their support extends to a patient’s friends and family members during any stage of the illness, including bereavement. The team of nurses, complementary therapists and trained volunteers can offer guidance and support to patients, family members and carers.
- Bereavement Support– Living with a life-limiting illness, or coping with grief after a loss can be overwhelming. Professional psychological support is available to all patients and families who need it through the Rowans Hospice Bereavement Support service. Bereavement support is offered to those who have had somebody close to them die under the care of Rowans Hospice. The team of Clinical Psychologists, Psychotherapists, and Counsellors based at the Hospice, are compassionate professionals trained to support people in these difficult circumstances.
How playing the Local Hospice Lottery helps Rowans Hospice
