What is palliative and end of life care?

Adult palliative care is an approach which aims to improve the quality of life of individuals, their families and carers facing the problems associated with a life threatening illness. It is achieved through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification, assessment, and treatment of pain and other problems, as well as the physical, psychosocial, and spiritual self.

Specialist palliative care, is the active, total care of individuals with progressive, advanced disease and of their families.

Key information about the hospice

There are currently no visitor restrictions at Cransley Hospice, however we do recommend where possible and depending on the health of the patient, that visitor numbers are kept to between 2-4 people and within the hours of 8 am and 8 pm.

This is only possible with your support

Why the kindness and support of our community is so important

In 2023 Cransley Hospice Trust raised almost £1,000,000 to support and develop end of life care and services in North Northamptonshire.  Your generosity and kindness means that in the future more people will be able to have the support they need at the end of their life.  They will get a chance to share special moments with their loved ones and die in comfort and with dignity, in the place they choose to be.
