CLUB CAPTAIN - Forest Holme Hospice Poole
The Forest Holme Hospice, which is part of Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. It is a centre of excellence in the care of people with advanced cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.
The care and support given is individually tailored to meet the physical, psychological and spiritual needs of all those coming into contact with staff based at Forest Holme. In order that all kinds of distress are minimised, the aim is to restore as much choice and control to individuals as is feasible, within the constraints of their illness. Family members, close friends and carers are also supported, both during a person’s illness and in bereavement.
Palliative care at Forest Holme Hospice is for adults with advanced, progressive serious illness. Forest Holme does not just look after people with cancer; expertise extends to other life-limiting illnesses such as Motor Neurone Disease, other neurological conditions, heart failure, renal failure and respiratory illness.
Forest Holme Hospice Charity is proud to work with Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust to help support the life-enhancing work of Forest Holme Hospice.
