In families’ own homes, we offer a seamless service of care for children and young people, age 0-19 years; working closely with a variety of care providers to provide cancer care, palliative care, end of life care and a wide range of other care and support services.
Each patient is assigned to a named ‘chYps’ Specialist Nurse who, with their colleagues, will provide the clinical in-home Hospice Care; liaise with other health and social care services; and help the patient and family access other relevant ‘chYps’ services.
These services include Music and Play Therapy, Counselling, Chaplaincy and pre and post bereavement support for the whole family.
A Short Break is fun and therapeutic for the child, or the siblings, and can provide respite for the parents.
We offer a variety of Patient and Family Support and Social Groups: a Youth Group; a Transition Youth Group; siblings groups; Coffee mornings; Music Therapy Groups; and a Parents’ Bereavement Group.
The care we provide is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year.
In the event of urgent issues, all families have access to our 24 hour on-call service.
Our services are provided completely free of charge to children, young people and their families.
