Rennie Grove Hospice Care aims to support patients with life-limiting illness to live where they choose for as long as possible by delivering excellent palliative and end-of-life care based around patients and their families both day and night.
Our model of care
We have been providing this care, built around a 24-hour responsive hospice at home ethos, since 1985. Our model of care is recognised nationally as best practice; our Director of Nursing chairs the National Association for Hospice at Home and we work with other hospices nationwide who wish to develop a Hospice at Home service.
We have captured our service model in two flow charts: one showing the specialist palliative care pathway for end-of-life care delivered in the patient’s home; the other showing the specialist palliative care pathway for the last year of life delivered in the patient’s home.
In 2016 - 2017 our model of care enabled 67% of our patients to die at home as opposed to just 22% nationally.

Working in partnership
Close collaborative working with healthcare partners is an essential part of providing excellent care for our patients. Without these partnerships we could not support our patients and their families to live and die where they choose.
Education for all
We are committed to maintaining high standards of care and our Education Team organises training – including our Annual Conference - for our own staff as well as other healthcare professionals.
