Home Based Care

Our palliative trained nursing sisters visit patients in their own homes. The nursing sister co-ordinates the care and liaises with other hospice team members such as the doctor, social worker, community care workers, volunteer caregivers and other professionals who may be involved in treating the patient.

What does Home Based Care consist of:

  • Regular visits by the Hospice Sister.  The need is re-assessed on  a regular basis as the patient’s condition changes
  • Pain and symptom control
  • Nursing management -  how to deal with incontinence, wound dressing, prevention of bed sores, colostomy care
  • Advice regarding nutrition and feeding
  • Equipment  such as commodes, wheelchairs, mattresses, sheepskins and walkers may be loaned by hospice patients at no charge.
  • Emotional support
