Hospice in the Weald Nurses are still caring for anyone who needs us. If you or your loved one needs Hospice care, be reassured that you will always get that care.
Our Services have remained open throughout the COVID pandemic, with some changes to keep our workforce, patients and those important to them safe. Now, more than ever, it is important that people living with terminal illness get the support they need.
Hospice in the Weald has cared for local families facing terminal illness for the last 40 years. This won’t stop now.
Our staff and volunteers are still caring and will ensure each and every person gets the outstanding Hospice palliative Care that is made possible by the generous support of people like you.
We’ll be here for local families for as long as the COVID pandemic lasts, and beyond. This includes having access to a bed at the Hospice if you or your loved one may need it. We have 25 beds across our In-Patient Ward and Cottage Hospice. We realise that for many families, the idea of care in an in-patient setting during the pandemic seems risky. We want to reassure you that our infection prevention and control measures are robust and effective.
Cottage Hospice has been maintained as a COVID-free site throughout the pandemic, and will continue to be, to ensure patients who need a bed can still access the care they need.
We will care for COVID positive patients on the In-Patient Ward in Pembury, to ensure everyone has access to Hospice palliative care.
The challenges of living with a terminal illness don’t stop during a pandemic. We will be here for all who need us, now and in the future.
