CLUB CAPTAIN - Forest Holme Hospice Poole

Captain 2018-19The 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.

The goal of the charity is to provide the best advice and support to anyone affected by dementia, including people living with dementia and their family and friends. You will need different information at different times and they aim to make sure this is always accurate, up to date and in the format you need. There is also information for health and social care professionals. I hope it helps you to understand more about the condition and support people with dementia, and their family and friends, to live as well as possible now and make plans for the future.
