As key workers, both our clinical and support staff teams will continue to support our community. Working closely with colleagues at the DHSC and in partnership with other third sector and community networks we will do all we can to continue to provide care to those in need during the COVID-19 circuit break.
It is important in the current situation that we take all reasonable steps to protect the wellbeing of those using our services, our staff and volunteers. More information on the measures we are taking are available on our updates section.
Our In-Patient Unit remains open, however please note that we are now restricting visitor access to the Hospice site to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. If you have a loved one using our In-Patient services, we kindly ask that you follow our guidance on visiting Hospice.
All our fundraising, social and community events from Wednesday 3rd March over the next 21 days have been postponed including our Spring Afternoon Tea and our Thank you Thursday. We are contacting those involved with these events directly and will continue to keep you updated about their postponements and any future events which may be affected. Thank you for your understanding.
At Hospice Isle of Man it is our pleasure to support the people of our Island to live well, their way, to the end of their life.
As an independent charity on the Isle of Man, Hospice provides free specialist End-of-Life and Palliative Care to hundreds of people across the Island each year, supporting the patient, their families and carers with compassionate, hospice-influenced care that is well co-ordinated, flexible and personal to them when they need it, in the setting of their choice whether that be at Hospice, at home - wherever they call home, or within a community setting.
Providing all aspects of Palliative Care including In-Patient Unit, Day Care, Hospice at Home, Complementary Therapy, Lymphoedema Service, Social Work, Bereavement & Pyschological Support and our Children's Hospice, Rebecca House, all of our services are provided free of charge whilst we deliver what matters to our patients, their families and carers.
We are delighted to say that our services are now back open and ready to receive patients again at our Hospice in Strang. Our building has undergone significant refurbishment and investment in our infrastructure in order to ‘Enhance the Healing Environment’ and to be fit for purpose for years to come.
A huge thank you to the Tevir Group for their incredible support of a £2.5 million donation for this project to make it possible.
