HospiceCare North Northumberland

Caring for Life!

  • When I come to the Hospice I feel normal because I can get away from all of the equipment which surrounds me at home and no-one keeps asking all the time ‘how are you’. It’s like visiting family and having a good natter.

Chairman's Welcome

Welcome to the HospiceCare website! We know from our work with patients with life limiting conditions, their families and carers, that our services are greatly valued and make a real difference.

Thank you and my best wishes.

Welcome!

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.
