"Our hospice aims to provide every person with a terminal illness and their families the best care possible.
Patients come to our in patient unit for symptom control. Others come to the hospice at the very end of their life when care elsewhere can’t meet their needs.
Care is delivered 24 hours a day. Our team of nurses, doctors, and therapists provide specialist treatment and care. We will also provide support and help for family and friends.
Following a major refurbishment in 2018, the Hospice now operates 10 in patient beds which are split into four side rooms and four 3-bedded bays. Our gardens were landscaped and are now wheelchair accessible so that both patients and their families and friends can enjoy the serene surroundings.
Generally, people stay with us for between 1 – 2 weeks and we will work with their entire unit of care to plan for safe care at home after discharge. We will liaise with our colleagues in the community to ensure that the necessary support is in place and that care is continued at the highest standard possible.
Sometimes people need longer-term 24-hour care and we will work with the individual and those to close to them to see how this can be arranged at home or may help with a transfer to a local care home.
More information about what to expect when visiting the in patient unit for the first time can be found here.
All clinical services at the Hospice are provided thanks to an innovative partnership between Michael Sobell Hospice and Harlington Hospice.
