End of life care

Our care team helps families to think about their wishes when their child is dying. Some may choose to come to our hospices for end of life care, and we will liaise with all professionals known to the child, ensuring they are cared for in the best possible way.

Memory making is a very important part of this time, and our team will support families in making these last days special, according to their own particular wishes.

Some families may choose to stay at home or in a hospital and come to the hospice after their child has died. Our special bedrooms – the Butterfly Suite at Demelza SEL and the Hop Garden at Demelza Kent – enable a family to stay close to their child before the funeral.

Whatever your wishes, our specialist and compassionate care team can offer support, advice and practical help through this very difficult time.
