Salisbury Hospice Charity is excited to announce that Salisbury Hospice will be offering a Hospice at Home service.
One million pounds is being freed up by Salisbury Hospice Charity to fund a brand new Hospice at Home service over the next three years. It will provide high quality care for palliative patients coming to the end of their life who want to stay in their own home.
Chairman of the Salisbury Hospice charity, Ceri Hurford-Jones, said: 'I am delighted to announce the provision of the 'Hospice at Home' service at this time. The charity is in the fortunate position to be able to make this happen now, following a number of years of amazing engagement and support from the local community who benefit from the remarkable services provided by Salisbury Hospice.
'We just couldn't have done it without them and are so grateful for their continued commitment.'
It will cost £1 million pounds to provide 'Hospice at Home' for three years. This money will come from the charity's reserves, meaning there will be no impact on existing inpatient and community services at Salisbury Hospice. The continuing annual cost of the Hospice at Home service after that date will be in the region of £300,000 per annum which the charity has pledged to raise.
It is also hoped that the service will act as 'crisis intervention'; preventing any unnecessary admissions to an acute hospital, hospice or alternative care setting. Salisbury Hospice is working to a six month schedule to get the Hospice at Home service live.
