We provide care for children with life-limiting and life-shortening conditions wherever and whenever it is needed – in our hospices, at home and out in the community. Our service is totally flexible and bespoke for our families – it is also completely free.
Every family receives an allocation of care hours for their child, not a fixed timetable of sessions. Parents are free to ‘spend’ these hours in any way they want – a few hours every week, regular days, or just now and again. By giving families choice we are providing a service that truly works for them.
Life-threatening situations can happen without warning but imagine the reassurance of having access to specialist care, to know your child is in safe, skilled hands. Giving parents the confidence to take a mental and physical break from the exhausting cycle of care is what we do.
The care provided by Julia’s House children’s hospice has been awarded ‘Outstanding’ following a recent inspection (December 2021) by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the highest rating to be awarded by the independent regulator of care and social care in England.
