Over the last 35 years we have developed innovative ways of extending our care beyond the building so that you and your loved ones have more choice in how you live, and where you 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 you are a patient, family member, friend or carer, we will be here as long as you need us. We will make sure that you have confidence in moving forward, equipped with skills that will stay with you for life.
We are committed to providing ‘hospice influenced care’ that is well co-ordinated, flexible and personal to you when you need it, in a setting of your choice. Whether you prefer to receive your care within our building, at home, from another health care provider or within a community setting, we will ensure that your carers and our care partners are equipped with the skills that will support you to live well, your way, to the end of your life.
In November 2018, we commenced our ‘Enhancing the Healing Environment’ project which will improve the physical environment for our patients, their families and others who use our services.
Significant refurbishment works commenced in June 2019 at both Hospice Isle of Man and our children's hospice, Rebecca House, at our Strang location. To cause the minimum of disruption to our patients, our in-patient unit has temporarily relocated to a specialist unit at Southlands in Port Erin for the duration of the refurbishment works and will remain there into 2020.
