Community nurses care at home

We have a team of dedicated community nurse specialists who deliver care to patients with life-limiting illnesses in their own homes across the service area. The cover approximately 23,000 miles across North Somerset every year caring for patients at home.

Your Hospice Community Nurse Specialist can:

  • Offer support to you in your own home (which could include care homes) throughout your illness so you can live independently.
  • Work with and advise your GP, district nurse, other healthcare and social care workers to provide you with pain and symptom relief, emotional and spiritual support, and help with accessing financial or other support as needed.
  • Advise you on all of the hospice’s services, liaise with other teams or refer you to another service to provide you with the support that you, your family and your nurse feel will be beneficial.
  • Give extensive expertise in palliative care and will share that knowledge to help your support network (including family and friends) look after you.

If your symptoms become more settled, you could be discharged from your Hospice Community Nurse Specialist’s active caseload. If this happens, please be assured that you will still have open access to us, but we may need to speak with your GP again first.

If you have any questions, or if you feel you need support after you’ve been discharged, contact your Hospice Community Nurse Specialist.

    Reclaim Gift Aid

    Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Weston Hospicecare to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Weston Hospicecare we can claim back 25p from the government.

    By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Weston Hospicecare to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Weston Hospicecare will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

    What is Gift Aid?

    Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Weston Hospicecare receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

    All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

    The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
