Children's Hospice at Home

A children's hospice at home patient

Rennie Grove Hospice Care also provides a 24 hour children's hospice at home service caring for children and young people throughout North West Herts and the Chilterns area of Bucks who have been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness.

The service is funded by a dedicated registered charity, the Pepper Foundation and the nursing team providing the care is known as the Pepper Nursing Team.
 
The Pepper nurses work with families to provide individualised care and support for each child and their family in their own home on a 24/7 on-call basis. 

The nurses are qualified paediatric nurses with extensive experience in caring for children and young people up to 19 years of age with conditions that require palliative or end-of-life care. The team works in partnership with all other professionals involved with the child and family to ensure co-ordination of care.

All care and support is provided at no cost to the patients or their families and currently the ​nursing team cares for over 50 children at any one time.
