More and more people are choosing to be cared for at home and our specialist community teams can help patients to achieve their wish.
Our community services include:
- Hospice@Home (Salford and Trafford)
- Community Specialist Palliative Care (Salford)
- Outreach Complementary Therapy (Central/North Manchester)
Hospice@Home teams (Salford and Trafford)
Caring for someone at home can place both physical and emotional strain on families, friends and carers. Our team of nurses and nursing assistants can help by offering nursing care and support. They work in partnership with district nurses, specialist palliative care nurses and other community services.
Community Specialist Palliative Care team (Salford)
This is a specialist resource working with your GP and district nurse team. Following an assessment, we can deliver ongoing support to either you or your GP and district nurse team where needed.
Outreach Complementary Therapies service (central and parts of North Manchester)
This service is available to patients who are unable to leave their home to receive a complementary therapy because they are too ill, find travelling difficult or for other reasons. The complementary therapies offered are aromatherapy, therapeutic massage, reflexology and reiki, and this service is also open to the patient’s principle carer.
How you can be referred to these services
You can be referred through your GP, palliative care specialist nurse (including Macmillan and District Nurses), a doctor or consultant at a hospital, or other health care professional.
