Tidewell Hospice Houses
Being at home in familiar surroundings and close to loved ones is the first choice of most people. But when that is not possible, Tidewell’s seven hospice houses offer an alternative where professional staff is available 24 hours a day.
Tidewell Hospice Houses provide the setting for nursing staff to maintain control of patients’ symptoms and manage pain, or it can be a place where patients come while their caregivers get a well-earned, much-needed period of respite. Family members are able to relinquish their caregiving responsibilities to the professionals and resume their role of loving wife, husband, child or life partner.
Sometimes, a hospice house is a place to say goodbye. The tranquil setting and a staff expert in palliative care ease the fear and anxiety of dying patients and those who love them.
