End of Life Support

If you or someone you know is nearing the end of their life support is available from Sidmouth Hospice at Home who provide tailored care and support for people in the Sid Valley diagnosed as palliative, and their carers and families. Volunteers provide support by driving (e.g. medical appointments and shopping), befriending, and in bereavement. 

Sidmouth Hospice at Home provide palliative care of patients with life limiting illnesses, particularly in the latter stages of their illness, and their family carers and those dear to them.  A Palliative Nursing Team is funded by Sidmouth Hospice at Home and provided by the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Trust and it works alongside the Sidmouth RD&E community nursing team. The Nurses provide continuity of care for all patients and their families 24 hours a day and 7 days a week when needed, including: specialist symptom control for complex patients; hospice at home nursing care to enable more patients to remain in their own homes and prevent unnecessary hospital admissions; psychological and emotional support for all patients and families; and coordination and oversight of wider community support (including volunteer support) to meet the individual needs of each patient and their family
