Caring for families wherever they need it.

When it comes to your child, a lot of the focus becomes on treatment, managing symptoms, appointments and medications – and it can all get exhausting. That’s why Demelza offers Care at Home. Our registered nurses and health care assistants go directly into your home to provide care, crisis intervention, an on-call service and respite.

Individualised care

Each personal session will be tailored to your family’s specific needs. One of our health care assistants or registered nurses will take care of the child, so that you can take some time out; last year one mum used the time to take driving lessons and another told us it is the only opportunity she gets to properly vacuum her stairs. The time will be yours to do exactly what you need or want to do, knowing your child is being cared for by our highly trained and experienced team.

Expert nursing care

Our registered nurses have extensive knowledge and experience administering complex medication regimes, including the use of a syringe driver. We will work collaboratively with community care colleagues to support you and your child should you require this or have recently come out of hospital.

Flexible support at home

The Community Care Team gives you the choice of how and where to receive care. Rather than having to travel to our hospices, you can receive support in an environment that feels comfortable for you and your child.

Building relationships

At Demelza, we get to know every child, young person and family we work with, to make sure you receive a care plan as individualised and unique as you are. Our care teams will take the time to get to know you and learn more about your needs. In doing so, we can provide bespoke care and support and build strong and trusting relationships, so everyone gets the most out of the experience.
