hospice at home4

Odiham Cottage Hospital Charitable Trust is delighted to provided funding to St Michael’s Hospice, Basingstoke to ensure that their valued Hospice at Home Service is available 7 days a week to patients in the local community area.

It takes the skills, ethos and practical nursing care associated with the Hospice into the home environment.  Hospice at Home Nurses and Healthcare assistants work with patients to ensure they receive the necessary emotional, psychological and practical nursing care to die at home, if that is their wish.  The Hospice at Home service is provided free of charge to support patients and those people caring for them.

Hospice at Home not only supports patients but also their carers and family members as it provides an opportunity for them to have a break or a little time to do something for themselves safe in the knowledge that their loved one is being cared for.
