Caring for you at Home

Caring for you at home

Home is where the heart is.

Phyllis Tuckwell’s Care at Home team gives patients, their families and carers, access to high quality, compassionate care in the place they most want to be…at home, or in their care home or community hospital. Our service for patients and families living with an advanced or terminal illness, across Guildford, Waverley, Farnham, Surrey Heath and NE Hampshire areas, brings the skills and expertise of our team of highly-trained professionals – Specialist Palliative Consultants and Doctors, Nurses, Social Workers, Welfare Advisors, Chaplains, Therapists and Counsellors – straight into your home and gives you, your family and your carers access to the vital support that’s needed at this difficult time.

Our Clinical Nurse Specialists and Doctors may be the first point of contact that you have with us. We work closely with GPs, District Nurses and other Hospital Health Care Professionals involved in your care. Our specialist team can assess your needs, offer advice on managing complex symptoms, assist with advance care planning, provide physical and psychological care, and provide access to information and therapies tailored to your needs, and those of your family or carer.

Compassionate Hospice nursing at home

The Care at Home service includes our Hospice Care at Home team – Registered Nurses and Health Care Assistants – who support very ill patients, providing nursing and personal care, helping you and your family cope with the final few weeks and days of life at home. We work with the District Nursing team, providing care during the day, with some overnight care available during the last days of life, to support people’s wishes to die at home.

To enable you to stay at home, we work with other health care professionals to support rapid discharges from hospital and help reduce unplanned hospital admissions.
