Jersey Hospice Care

Jersey Hospice Care is about choice. We believe that everyone deserves to be treated with respect, to die pain free, with dignity and in a place of their choosing. Our vision is that everybody in our community with a life-limiting condition should have access to the highest standard of palliative care, and that it should always be free and available to anybody who needs it, regardless of diagnosis. We deliver a multidisciplinary, holistic approach to the care of children, young people and adults with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions, working alongside existing service providers, providing a collaborative approach to patient care.

We recognise and respect that each person is unique and our individualised approach to care aims to help them to make the most of what time is left, and ultimately, to help each person live life to the full.

Jersey Hospice Care fulfils its purpose through its principal activity of providing palliative and supportive care to islanders through the following services:

- Adult in-patient palliative medical and nursing care in a twelve-bed unit;

- Adult outpatient palliative and supportive care (including therapies) in the King Centre (this service is currently suspended);

- Adult community nursing team that provides palliative care in the home, hospital and other community settings;

- Bereavement services for all Jersey residents including family support services; and

- Outreach services to Children and Young People (CYP) through a dedicated team offering support at home or in hospital, as well as providing one to one and group sessions in the King Centre.

All of these services are provided free of charge to patients and their loved ones in order to ensure that they are accessible for all and are provided where and when and for however long they are needed.
