Hope House was opened in May 1995 and named after Hope Peachey, who died aged eight months. Since then they have cared for more than 250 terminally ill children and their families.

 

Both Hope House in Oswestry and its sister hospice Ty Gobaith in Conway offer a wide range of nursing care to all terminally ill and life limited children from within Cheshire, Shropshire, Wrexham and Powys.

 


 

 

Our Services

 

Each member of the care team has received specialist training to ensure that every baby, child or young person receives the highest quality care and support needed at this most distressing time. There is a wide range of bespoke care available also for parents and siblings who are using the hospice and for those who have been bereaved.

 

  • Outreach Nursing

Experienced children's nurses & trained carers are able to provide emergency and terminal nursing care within the family home. Occasionally it may be possible to provide planned respite within the home.

 

  • Sibling Support

Building Bridges is the sibling support programme which includes a variety of age specific activity days and outings during which brothers and sisters can meet up and share concerns with others who truly understand what it is like to live with a life limited sibling.

 

  • Support groups

These groups are run for parents using the hospice and small focused groups are organised periodically for bereaved parents.

 

  • Social Work Support

The Social Work Team provides advocacy, guidance and support to the children, young people and families who use Hope House. They may also provide financial advice, help with housing adaptation applications and support with transition to adult services.

 

  • Bereavement Support

Full support will be offered to all families following the death of a child for as long as the family needs it. This support may be delivered by a variety of professionals within the care team and may range from formal family counselling to informal befriending. Annual remembrance services are held and all families who have lost a child are invited to attend.

 

  • Counselling

A Family Counsellor is employed to offer support to all Hope House families. This may be on an individual basis or in a family group, both pre and post bereavement.
