Who we care for
Our patients live within Brighton & Hove and Havens; they are aged 18 or over. We care for patients who have a terminal cancer diagnosis or any other illness that needs specialist palliative care. This may be patients who wish to die at home, or need additional short-term, patients who have been discharged from the hospital, Martlets InPatient Unit or patients on the Martlets waiting list. We don’t just care for our patients; we’re here for the family as well.
What kind of care do we provide?
The team provides physical care, emotional and social support, as well helping to control any symptoms our patients may have. We offer complementary therapists for home visits, although this is not available in the Havens.
Who we are
The team includes experienced nurses and nursing auxiliaries, who are supported by the Hospice’s Medical Consultants, Social Workers, Chaplain, Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists.
Patients are referred to us by District Nurses, GPs, Macmillan Nurses or End of Life Care specialists.
