Hospice at Home
You may not need to leave your home to receive end of life care, as our Hospice at Home service aims to enable patients in the end stages of a life-limiting illness to be cared for at home, and to die at home if that is their preference.
There for You at Home
When you are cared for by our Hospice at Home team, a team of community nurses come to your home and provide nursing care for you there. You may also need specialist care from community palliative care nurses who can visit you at home to:
- provide or arrange hands-on nursing or personal care, if you need it
- advise on pain and symptom control
- provide practical and emotional support for you, your loved ones and carers at home.
Other specialist healthcare professionals can also be involved in your care at home, if their expertise is needed.
Always on Hand
For those in the final stages of any life limiting illness, Hospice at Home gives access to hands-on care, clinical expertise and home visits at any hour of the night or day.
Support may be provided to prevent admission to, or facilitate discharge from, hospice or hospital inpatient care. Care may also support times of rapid change.
Caring in Partnership
Our Hospice at Home service strives to be of the highest possible standard to enhance the quality of life of patients, while supporting carers and families.
Saint Catherine’s works in partnership Marie Curie to deliver the Hospice at Home 24/7 service. We work with NHS district nurses and other health professionals to provide coordinated services to patients who are registered with a Scarborough or Filey GP practice.
