Information about our services for patients and families.Our care services
Our Community support team provides support for children and young people.
Our Community Team is the first point of contact for families wanting to use Chestnut Tree House and provides a vital link between families and the hospice.
The team consists of specially trained nurses and care support workers who visit all new families in their own homes to introduce them to Chestnut Tree House and inform them of the variety of services they can offer.
All families are allocated a named nurse and keyworker to discuss any aspect of their child’s care and remain a familiar point of contact. These nurses have a base in your local area.
Short break care is available, as well as clinical nursing care, end of life care, emotional support sessions, pre and post bereavement support.
The Community Team run day care sessions throughout the year.
These sessions allow parents and carers to have short breaks, whilst children are able to access the full range of facilities available at Chestnut Tree House.
