Hospices provide care specifically for terminally ill people and give support to their carers both in the hospice and at home.
Admission is arranged through your doctor or hospital consultant who will know of homes in your area.
The Social Work Service can make arrangements for social respite should your needs not be of a medical nature as your carer will require further support in managing your care.
