Nottinghamshire Hospice

Adding Life to Days

Our Care Services

Nottinghamshire Hospice is an independent local charity and we’ve been caring for adults in Nottinghamshire with cancer and other life-limiting or terminal illnesses, and supporting their family and carers, since 1980. All of our services are offered free of charge.

We offer:

Our Services

Hospice Outreach and Discharge Support Service

The new Hospice Outreach and Discharge Support Service combines urgent personal care and emotional support with therapies previously provided at the hospice, and is geared up to respond quickly to prevent people from being admitted to hospital or to support people to come home.

Our Hospice at Home service provides nursing care for adults with terminal and life-limiting illnesses in their own home.

Depending on your needs, our qualified nurses and experienced palliative healthcare assistants offer nursing care, advice and emotional support and can be with you for periods of 3-9 hours during the day or night. It’s like having you local hospice in the comfort of your own home.

Counselling and Spiritual Support
Whether you’ve been diagnosed with a terminal illness or are caring for someone who has, we know that it can feel isolating and overwhelming. You or your family may be experiencing all kinds of emotions, from anger to fear to disbelieve. We’re here for you and can provide a wide range of support on one-to-one and group basis, either at the hospice or at a suitable location for you.

Bereavement Support
Bereavement support at Nottinghamshire Hospice is person-centred with no judgement – it’s simply a safe space to be heard. There’s no wrong or right way to approach grief and everyone deals with things differently. That’s why we have a range of support at our Day Therapy Centre, according to your needs. We can also arrange to see you at home or within your local community.

Carer Support
Caring for someone, whether they’re a family member, partner or friend, is very rewarding but at times it can be stressful and feel isolating.

If you’re caring for a loved one, our carer support services are there to help you cope with the challenges of looking after someone and make it a less lonely experience.
