Our Services

Southern Area Hospice Services is a charity providing specialist palliative care for people across the Southern Health Trust region suffering from cancer, Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone Disease and AIDS. We also provide ongoing support for their families and friends.

The patients we admit require specialised treatment for complex problems such as pain, symptom control or to address psychological, spiritual or social needs.  The average length of time that patients are with us is around ten days after which time most are able to return to their homes.

Care is provided by a multi-disciplinary specialist team consisting of doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, chaplains, social workers and complementary therapists, pharmacy, dieticians and occupational therapy.  The team work closely together through careful assessment and care delivery to help patients, and their families and friends, ‘live every moment’ and get the most from their lives.
