Established in 1997 Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland (Hospice at Home) provides high quality, palliative care and support to patients, family members and carers affected by life limiting illness.
Our core and largest service is our Nursing Team which consists of Registered Nurses and Healthcare Assistants who are skilled in providing nursing care and support in the last year of life and at end of life. We also have other clinical services which may be required in addition to our nursing service.
Services provided are free of charge to those who need them.
Hospice at Home’s nursing service provides high quality, individualised nursing care for adults aged eighteen years and over who have a life limiting illness.
Lymphoedema is a condition which causes chronic swelling, usually of the arm or leg. It is caused when the drainage systems from the tissues of the body fail in some way.
Complementary therapies are offered by a team of qualified, experienced therapists using an holistic approach.
Following the diagnosis of a life-limiting illness or following bereavement, the aim of the family support service is to provide those involved with an opportunity to explore their feelings in a safe and supportive way.
The Befriending Service is a complementary addition to Hospice at Home’s clinical services. Befrienders are trained volunteers who are co-ordinated and managed via Hospice at Home’s Nursing Service.
