How can we help? Patients Your care Your care Hospice care is about life and living, not just death and dying. If this surprises you then you are not alone. So many people fear it is simply a place to go to die. This is one of the myths that surround the word ‘hospice’. Sadly people turn down the offer of help because of this fear, not realising that a hospice is not a building but a very special way of caring. At Farleigh Hospice, we help you to live as actively as possible from the point of diagnosis to the end of your life, however long that may be. We also provide care and support for your family and carer(s) throughout your illness, and beyond. Living with a life-limiting illness can affect every aspect of your life, and so we offer a range of clinical services to support you and those close to you. We can provide: Someone who can talk to you about your illness and treatments, and answer any questions you may have right now, and about what may happen in the future Someone to talk to about how you are feeling Support and encouragement to live and enjoy your life as much as possible Referral to and liaison with other services you may need Our services are tailored to your individual needs, and aim to take into account problems that might be encountered because of your illness.
