HospiceCare North Northumberland

Caring for Life!

  • The HospiceCare is such a lovely thing to have. Such lovely people offering a massive amount of help and support. They were strangers, yet I felt like I had known each and every one of them forever.

Latest Hospice Happenings

    Hopsice Happenings - Issue 4

    So much has occurred since our last issue almost a year ago that it is most timely to bring you up to date
    with the latest Hospice Happenings!

    In the last issue I mentioned how HospiceCare is still growing into a ‘mighty oak!’
    Well I think I can safely say that HospiceCare is most definitely moving out of the ‘sapling’ phase and developing into a ‘young oak!,’ as the Hospice services continue to develop to meet the changing needs of our communities living in North Northumberland.

Welcome to HospiceCare

HospiceCare is North Northumberland's only local Hospice providing personalised care and support for patients, carers and families. HospiceCare has a dedicated team of Health Care Assistants who have all the necessary skills and knowledge to care and support patients, carers and families in their own home, working in partnership with other health and social care providers. The timing of care and support delivered is tailored around the needs of the patient and family or carer.

Hospice at Home is also about supporting those who wish to die at home. This might involve providing care at short notice to facilitate rapid discharge from hospital, as well as being there when a patient’s condition begins to deteriorate. Our professional Hospice at Home team is supported by volunteers who play a valuable role, whether providing complementary therapies in the home or simply being with the patient whilst their carer goes shopping or to the hairdresser.

We hope you are inspired by the work we do and the amazing stories from patients and families. There are many ways in which you can support us ranging from direct donations, coming to one of our events or challenges, volunteering, community fundraising, corporate partnerships and so much more. Please help us to continue to provide this free and local service to so many people.
