What Is Hospice At Home
Hospice care does not have to be about a specific building, but more a philosophy of care which revolves around the person and their family, which can be provided in a variety of settings, including the place they call home.
We aim to provide a high quality of care and support to both patients and carers in the familiar surroundings of their own home. Care and support is tailored to meet the needs of each individual in order to improve quality of life and ultimately help towards a peaceful and dignified death.
History of Herriot Hospice Homecare
Herriot Hospice Homecare grew from the passion of the members of public who founded our organisation in Northallerton in 1992, later becoming a registered charity in 1996.
Over the years, the organisation has grown and today delivers a network of services to the community across Hambleton and Richmondshire, supporting around 600 people each year.
