In July 2016, we started our own Home Care team that allows patients to be cared for in their own home.

Home Care was born out of sheer frustration, as patients with a short prognosis up to 10 weeks, were having their discharges delayed, often by weeks, due to lack of community care availability.

The Home Care team operate seven days a week from 8am – 8.30pm and visit patients up to three times daily. Patients who are cared for under the Home Care team are eligible for fast track funding, so it is not means tested and has no cost implications to patients.

The advantage of our Home Care service is that it is designed to meet the needs of the patients as we are often required to get patients home within a few hours, if this is their wish, and will also commence Home Care to prevent an unnecessary admission.  This service dovetails very well with Hospice at Home.

The Home Care team are responsive to the needs of the patients.  Care arrangements are often flexible as the patient’s condition deteriorates and their care needs increase.  The Home Care team can accommodate these changes.
