The care and support you would provide to patients and their families is rewarding and has a huge impact on people at a very difficult time in their lives.
Are you ready to make a real difference?
Hospice at Home/PCSS comprises of a team of nurses and healthcare assistants who provide hands-on nursing care at home for people at the end of their lives and for those who require short-term support to help them through a crisis. The service is provided and managed by North London Hospice. When someone is in a hospital or a hospice but would prefer to be at home for their last few days of life, PCSS may be able to provide the care to help this happen. It can also help to avoid hospital admission when families are feeling overwhelmed. The team is trained by North London Hospice to give hands-on care to patients who are at the end of their lives or patients with progressive illnesses. Healthcare assistants offer practical care such as washing, toileting and assisting the family.
