Hospice Care

Care Options

What are your options?
There are a range of options, with a range of benefits. Home care, NHS provisions, residential care, hospices - throw into the midst of this most emotive of subjects the issue of cost too, and it is no wonder many feel a sense of foreboding at tackling the issue, and a fear of making the wrong choice.

The correct option for you depends upon your circumstances and the form of care required. If ony a few hours help a day are required then care at home is an option. Live-in care is also an option, however, it may well work out cheaper to arrange for a residential nursing home. Furthermore, there are numerous excellent hospices around the country that do sterling work for those most in need.

Care for the Elderly ...


There is a common misbelief that a hospice is where everyone goes to die. That is not true. The average stay in a hospice is twelve to fourteen days, after which many patients return home.


NAHF What Is A Hospice

The hospice is not just a place where people come to die. Many go back home again; many carers are glad of the respite to re-charge their batteries and re-kindle their commitment to those they love. see Funding Care for the Elderly
