Hospice care

We provide people with free hospice care in their own homes.

When asked, most of us say we want to die at home, in the comfort of familiar surroundings, close to those we love.

But that’s only possible if the right end of life care is available. That means having access to specialist advice, nursing care and regular emotional support. And for families caring for loved ones it means having someone they can turn to for reassurance and respite.

That’s where our nurses step in. Providing hands-on care whenever it’s needed, our nurses make it possible for people to be cared for in their own home, surrounded by family, friends and pets. Guided by a patient’s needs and wishes, our nurses work closely with GPs and community nurses to help manage symptoms and give each person the care that’s right for them. And by helping people to relax and feel like themselves the nurses make sure patients and their families get the most out of their last moments together.

The team offers care whenever it’s needed, whether that’s for a few hours in the day or through the night.

Who do we offer hospice care to?

We look after anyone, aged 18 and over, who is in their last weeks of life. Patients are referred to us by GPs, community and specialist nurses, hospitals, hospices, and occasionally, family members.

In addition to providing respite care for a patient’s family at home, Lawrence Nurses extend support to a patient’s loved ones after their death. The Lawrence Nurses’ bereavement walks is a new venture for the charity supporting all families in the community. For more information on our Bereavement Support Walks please visit our events page.

“Mum was cared for by your team, or as my Dad calls them, angels. Her wishes were met with the utmost dignity by your dedicated team. The respect she was shown and the way you supported us in our darkest hour makes me believe we did her proud. Thank you for being the light in the dark”
