Who are we?
Hospice at Home West Cumbria provides high quality, palliative and end of life care to people living in West Cumbria and we are the only provider of adult hospice services in this area. This means that all funds raised by
local people help us to provide care for those in need within their own community.
Established in 1987 we have been nationally and internationally recognised as delivering an excellent model for homebased palliative and end of life care.
There are no National Charities providing home nursing care in this area, only Hospice at Home West Cumbria.
What do we do?
Home nursing is at the heart of Hospice at Home West Cumbria. We provide skilled nursing care on a one-to-one basis to adults within their own home or alternative residential settings, enabling them to remain in their chosen place of care at end of life.
We deliver a range of family and bereavement support services for families,
carers and those bereaved; these include one to one support, group support and complementary therapy. This support enables people to cope during the most difficult and challenging times in their lives.
We are also the sole providers of specialist lymphoedema care in West
Cumbria. This is a particularly challenging condition that affects many people. It can be as a result of cancer or cancer treatment but it can also be caused by other non-cancer related conditions.
Our care and support is available to those with a life limiting illness,
regardless of cause, and is offered for free at the point of need.
What area do we cover?
We cover the area from Maryport to Millom and into the Buttermere, Eskdale and Wasdale Valleys.
