Shipston Home Nursing, providing the best quality of life, nursing and care for those experiencing any terminal illness. Shipston home nursing will provide nursing care and respite care within the last three months of life for those who wish to remain in their own home.

Palliative Care

Shipston Home Nursing provides palliative care through its team of qualified professional nurses.

Palliative care is the active, total care of patients whose illness no longer responds to curative treatment and who wish to have the best quality of life for themselves and their families.

Palliative care is now a widely recognised form of specialist medical care, focusing on the control of pain and other symptoms associated with a terminal illness. Above all it endeavours to ease suffering and enhance the quality of life for both patient and family.

In itself, palliative care neither hastens nor postpones death and pays equal attention to meeting the physical, psychological, social and spiritual aspects of care.

Working Across Our Region

Palliative care is available from the Charity to those living within the area marked on the map:

Caring For You And Your Family

Referrals can be made via your GP, District Nurse, MacMillan Nurse, Hospice and General Hospital.

When you have been referred to the service, Janet Oakey, our Senior Nurse, or a nurse co-ordinator will visit to discuss your nursing needs. Shipston Home Nursing's input will complement the existing medical and nursing care that you are receiving. Shipston Home Nursing works hand in hand with other services, GPs, District Nurses, MacMillan Nurses and the local Hospices.
