The Inpatient Unit at Hartlepool & District Hospice offers vital 24-hour a day specialist care, comfort and support to people who are living with a life limiting illnesses, such as cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, multiple sclerosis or end stage heart disease, whilst supporting their families.
People stay at the Inpatient Unit for two reasons:
- To get difficult symptoms under control.
- During the advanced stages of their illness.
Patients stay with us for varying lengths of time, depending on their need.
Whilst at the Hospice, patients and their families/carers are also able to access the full range of the specialist and generalist services we offer, including physiotherapy, occupational therapy, spiritual care, emotional and psychological support and complementary therapies.
