“I have a great deal of confidence in referring patients to the step-down facility and homecare as I am very aware of the role they have played in providing Palliative Care services in our district. The Palliative Care approach to people living with mental health challenges will provide much needed holistic support not only to the patient but also to their families”
A palliative approach to people living with mental health
South Coast Hospice has started a programme for palliative care for those with mental health challenges. Two highly qualified psychiatric nurses with many years of experience have trained the team of trained caregivers, enrolled nurses and two long serving hospice Palliative Care trained caregivers to provide care to this vulnerable group.
