An innovative partnership between Care Plus Group, Marie Curie and St Andrew’s Hospice sees the launch of a new service offering 24 hour, 7 days a week health and social care for people in receipt of palliative and end of life care.
Called the Haven Service, staff are working together to provide health and social care and support to patients and their families/carers with palliative and end of life care needs in their own homes.
The new Haven Service provides support for people who are:
• Palliative/ at the End of their Life and need support to remain at home.
• People who have an advanced and progressive palliative condition that require short term support due to an unstable event or crisis situation.
The service works in conjunction with the community nursing teams, and provides a mix of health and social care to the patient and their family to enable people to meet their preferred place of care and to die at home if that is what they wish. The service was formally launched at St Andrew’s Hospice on January 15.
Lisa Revell, Strategic Lead for Palliative and End of Life Care in North East Lincolnshire said:
The Haven Service is one of many key initiatives as part of the N E Lincolnshire End of Life Care Strategy. We are committed to improving care for people and their families in order to achieve a good death and are pleased that we can work in partnership to achieve this.
