Hospice care

Hospice care is a system of care that helps those with an incurable illness to focus on making the most of whatever time is left. Support is also offered to those close to the patient, and many hospices also offer care during the bereavement period.

Hospices are no longer just for the last days of life. They now also offer a range of support, often alongside active treatment for an illness. The focus of modern hospice care is on helping people to live well until they die - to help with suffering, be it emotional or physical.

We do not provide hospice care, however, there are a number of hospices throughout Hampshire which do provide this sort of care.
