Hospice at Home is open to patients in our local community who are within their last 12 months of life, and wish to be cared for in the comfort of their own surroundings, with loved ones by their side.
Our team of experienced health care assistants provide day-time and overnight (10pm to 7am) sits to offer the chance for carers to have a night’s sleep or to shop, undertake essential tasks, or just to relax. We work closely with your primary care team e.g. your district nurses, GP, and others involved in your care. Blythe House staff will follow the district nurse’s care plans to ensure both safety and continuity of care.
Since April 2020, our Hospice at Home team has been working in partnership with Helen’s Trust to bring home care to more patients across the High Peak, Derbyshire Dales and North East Derbyshire.
Our ‘Here to help you at home’ booklet includes advice and guidance around caring for someone at home; support when someone is believed to be in the last days of life; and what to do after someone has died. Our sincere thanks to Irwin Mitchell Solicitors and the Derbyshire End of Life Care Alliance for their support with this booklet.
