Patients, Families & Friends

Nursing Service

Community specialist palliative care nurses aim to provide high quality, up to date advice on symptom control. We also provide support for you and your family's emotional and spiritual needs.

In all we do, we aim to help you to maximise your independence and quality of life. We provide support to patients and families in making difficult decisions about future care. We also liaise closely with your GP, District Nurse and other health care providers about the care you or your relatives and friends require.

The Hospice at Home team is led by registered nurses with specialist palliative care experience. We work closely with GPs, district nurses and our community and hospital palliative care teams, as well as with other healthcare professionals involved in your care.

Our senior healthcare assistants can provide 24/7 hands-on care and support to you and your family. They help to support your choice to be at home in the last few days of life, this may be in your own home, a residential or nursing home. Our experienced senior healthcare assistants have received training in palliative nursing care through Rowcroft Hospice.
