Community Hospice Team
St Nicholas Hospice Care passionately believes in a person’s right to choose to be cared for and die at home.
Our locality does not have 24-hour nursing care provided by the statutory sector; and whilst St Nicholas Hospice Care already has Community Clinical Nurse Specialists (senior nurses who have undergone specialist training in palliative care) who make visits to terminally ill patients at home, this is currently only available during the day. The Community Hospice Team will provide this 24-hour care, aiming to improve the quality of life and wellbeing of terminally ill patients through providing dedicated care and support in their home to the very end of life. We believe everyone should have the right to a peaceful, pain free, dignified death, not alone and where possible, in familiar surroundings with family or friends.
