Budleigh Salterton & District Hospiscare has been supporting patients with life limiting illnesses in the local community for more than 30 years.
The Charity is now launching Hospiscare@Home, a new service providing specialist hands-on nursing care and advice in the patient’s own home, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, supporting patients who wish to remain at home at the end of their lives.
Bringing the expertise of the Hospice into the home, Hospiscare@Home is an extension of the clinical services already provided by the Charity and fills the gap between acute hospital care and the care offered by other support agencies.
As the only Charity offering specialist care to patients with life-limiting illnesses (and their families/carers) registered with the Budleigh Salterton and Woodbury Medical Practices, Hospiscare@Home is entirely funded by Budleigh Salterton & District Hospiscare, with the nursing service being provided by Hospiscare (Exeter, Mid & East Devon) nurses.
Hospiscare@Home is offered free of charge and Budleigh Salterton & District Hospiscare depends on the financial and voluntary support generously provided by the local community to continue its services.
Anyone wishing to help should contact the Charity on 01395 443629 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
