Isabel Hospice has been providing free palliative care to its patients and their families since 1982. It provides support and care to people in eastern Hertfordshire who are affected by life-limiting illnesses through its Hospice at Home, In-Patient Unit, Community Team, Living Well with Isabel program and its Family and Bereavement support service.
Isabel’s clinical teams work closely with other healthcare providers in the area, including care homes, hospitals and GP surgeries, improving access to services and sharing knowledge and expertise.
Isabel’s services are free of charge to those who need them, but they are not without cost, meaning £7 million must be raised each year to guarantee the future of care for Eastern Hertfordshire.
In the years 2021-2022, Isabel Hospice supported 1,435 patients – these services included 257 IPU admissions, 1,233 Clinical Nurse Specialist Patient consultations, 3,630 Hospice at Home contacts, 343 Living Well Patients and 3,163 Family Support Counselling sessions. Isabel supported over 2,000 people in the community through its Advice Line, Living Well Centre, Compassionate Neighbours program, Hospice at Home service and Family Support.
