We are experts in supporting people through the most difficult times of their lives.

We are highly skilled at dealing with the physical and emotional effects of life-changing conditions. We form a personalised care plan for you, in line with your wishes and needs.

Hospice at Home

Our Hospice at Home service is available seven days a week and provides care to patients with a life limiting illness who wish to be cared for at home at the end of their life. This care is available to service users who have Continuing Healthcare Funding in place, and where care or symptom support needs have increased due to deterioration of their overall illness.

Our team of Sue Ryder Nurses and nursing assistants are trained to provide the care and support needed. They can provide advice and support with managing symptoms, help with personal care, and also offer emotional and psychological support to the patient and those close to them.

In those 14 days at Thorpe Hall Hospice, I was able to become Mum’s daughter again instead of her carer. 14 extra days with the person we loved so much and I had the extraordinary privilege of holding her hand as she took her last breath.
