Homecare Visits

We can provide a range of services for you in the comfort of your own home.

Medical Home Care Visits

Southern Area Hospice Services provide medical home care service for those patients who wish to be cared for at home, in conjunction with the patient’s GP. Treatment and support are given in conjunction with that of the primary care team.

The main aim of Home Care Visits are similar to that of our Outreach Clinics in that they provide ongoing specialist palliative support by the primary care team and deliver a service right to the heart of the community where it is needed most.
