About the team

Health care at home is a service tailoring health care to individuals requiring palliative care and  support towards the end of their lives.

The provision of care for this service is commenced following an initial assessment by health professionals from community services, local hospital or the hospice.

The needs of the individual are discussed and a package of care is based upon the outcome of the assessment .  The package of care is flexible and can be adjusted as required to meet any changing needs.

Care packages can support people in meeting their personal care, nutrition and dietary intake and continence needs but this list is not exhaustive. The aim of the service to ensure patients receive continuity of care, maintain their independence and dignity.
