About Hospice at Home

If a patient’s wish is to be cared for or die in the comfort and familiarity of their own home, Fair Havens Hospice at Home can help.

Our specialist team of Nurses and Nursing Assistants will provide the care and compassion someone at the end of their life deserves, as well as supporting their family. They will support discharges from hospital to home, offer planned and urgent respite in the day and overnight, and provide holistic care at the end of someone’s life.

Our Community Hospice Service can offer care within a patient’s own home, telephone support or visits to our Fair Havens Hub. For advice and support please phone on 01702 220 350 and choose Option One. Telephone referrals are accepted for this type of care.

The services of Fair Havens Hospice, including our Hospice at Home service, can provide care for people from the age of 19 who have been diagnosed with a complex or incurable condition. They must be registered with a GP within Southend, Castle Point or Rochford.

Initial contact may be made either by a patient or carer, or any professional directly involved in the patient’s care. Anyone making a referral must have the consent of the patient.
