ABOUT HOSPICE ISLE OF MAN
Hospice Isle of Man is situated in Braddan. Hospice Isle of Man was set up 28 years ago and is a charity that provides specialist palliative care for patients and their families facing life limiting illness. The care includes physical, psychological, social and spiritual aspects and is provided by a multidisciplinary team free of charge.
Many patients are referred to the Hospice following diagnosis; they will often be cured but need the initial support for hospice many services. Usually we have around 300 adult patients and 25 children on our caseload.
Services Provided by Hospice Nursing Staff for our Patients
Hospice nursing staff care for our patients in all of the following services and their typical working day is described in more detail within this website.
The adult In-patient unit accommodation comprises 12 single rooms. Our Scholl Centre Day Therapy unit is open 3 days a week and can accommodate 12 patients each day. There is a Lymphoedema Service caring for patients with lymphoma secondary to cancer. We also have a team of 6 Clinical Nurse Specialists who support our patients in the community and in hospital. Additionally, there is a Hospice at Home nursing service to provide nursing care in the home to our patients who would rather stay at home than be admitted to Hospice, especially at the end of life.
Hospice has a 4 bedded children’s hospice, called Rebecca House. As well as end of life care, this service also provides day care and respite for our children. Our Rebecca House nursing team provide an outreach service for our children at the end of life.
