We provide specialist care for children and young people with life-limiting or life-threatening illnesses as well as supporting the whole family.
This high-quality family-led care will meet the specific needs of your child and support them to reach their full potential.
Caring for a child with complex health needs can be both physically and emotionally challenging. Hospice in the Weald will help families by providing respite care in the home, practical support, emotional support and advice.
Our home visits will be delivered in a way that works for you. We will work in partnership with you to create a care plan that enables us to deliver high-quality nursing care based on your child’s individualised needs and day-to-day routine. We are also passionate about providing opportunities for fun experiences and creating memories. The session of care will be up to three hours, but we can be flexible to accommodate your child and family’s needs.
Support for the family
Support is available to the whole family, not just your children. At Hospice in the Weald we take a holistic approach to the care we deliver and will work in partnership with you to create a unique package of care for your child and family.
From emotional support, such as counselling and bereavement support for siblings, parents, grandparents and other loved ones, to practical support from our volunteers, to help keep on top of busy family life, we’re here to help. This support will be available for anyone over the age of 18 until our Children’s Therapist has joined us.
