Our community told us that we can best serve the Isle of Man by actively supporting patients, their carers and family members.
Over the last 35 years we have developed innovative ways of extending our care beyond the building so that people have more choice in how they live, and where they receive end of life care when the time comes.
Our care doesn’t stop with our patients, many of our services are also extended to those that matter to them. Whether we are providing care for a patient, family member, friend or carer, we will be here as long as they need us. We will make sure that they have confidence in moving forward, equipped with skills that will stay with them for life.
We are committed to providing ‘hospice influenced care’ that is well co-ordinated, flexible and personal to individuals when they need it, in a setting of their choice. Whether the preferred place of care is within our building, at home, from another health care provider or within a community setting, we will ensure that carers and our care partners are equipped with the skills that will support people to live well, their way, to the end of life.
