Hospice Care at Home

Many people want to choose where they are cared for in the last weeks or days of life. Our nurses provide a Hospice Care at Home Service for patients who would like to stay at home, in familiar surroundings.

Our nurses are all experienced in end of life care. They are carefully selected for their aptitude and skill in this specific area of work, working day and night.

As we work in close partnership with the patient’s primary care team, their General Practitioners and District Nurses, we see ourselves as complimentary and supportive to each other.

Our highly skilled nursing team provides support for the family as well as the patient. Our 24 hour care helps to ease the pressure  on the family or carers of the patient at this difficult time.

Most of our work is carried out during night shifts between the hours of 10pm and 7am. This gives the family or carers some much needed sleep, knowing that their loved ones are in safe hands. We can also nurse during the day, giving carers the opportunity to do every-day errands, keep appointments or even just have a couple of hours ‘me time’.

What our GPs say about Campden Home Nursing:

Campden Home Nursing are a dedicated group of nurses who have helped look after many of our patients, allowing them to stay at home even when gravely ill. Having had personal experience of their support for one of my family I know how important that can be.
A Atkinson, GP

I know so many patients and some friends who benefited enormously from the caring, professional nursing input that Campden provides at times of real need.
K Thomas, GP

 Best quality of life at the end of life

We focus on the treatment of pain and other symptoms associated with a terminal illness with the end goal of giving the patient the best quality of life while they choose to remain at home. There is no set period or time for nursing a patient, as all cases are individual and will be managed according to need.

Referrals for nursing come from many sources; predominantly from a patient’s GP or District Nurse. However, a patient’s family or carer can refer directly to Campden Home Nursing. Our Nurse Co-ordinator will then liaise with the patient’s primary carers to co-ordinate a nursing plan.

We care for carers

We offer holistic support to patients and their families at a time when they need us most. If you are caring for someone with a life-limiting illness, we appreciate they need time out and the support and friendship of others in the same boat. You also need access to experts who can give you advice. We offer a range of workshops, support groups and activities at Jecca’s House that carers can join in. Please take a look at our timetable and workshops, and get in touch if you’d like to join us. If you’re not sure where to start, or who to turn to, please just drop in and see us at Jecca’s House, where the kettle is always on.
