We understand that not all patients wish to come into Willen Hospice to be cared for. Our community Willen at Home team can offer a valuable service to patients who choose to remain at home, in their own surroundings.
They work in partnership with General Practitioners, District Nurses and other health and social services, although the patient's own GP and District Nurse remain responsible for the overall care at all times.
The Willen at Home team's main aim is to help patients who choose to remain at home during their illness, to achieve this. They maintain the same ethos of care as delivered by Willen Hospice: to maintain dignity, assist in controlling symptoms and enable patients to make decisions about their care.
