There are many circumstances in the current situation where people may be cared for at home. Most people who get sick with COVID-19 will have only mild symptoms and should recover uneventfully at home. Care at home can help stop the spread of COVID-19 and help protect people who are most at risk from getting seriously ill from COVID-19.

Many people who have pre-existing conditions will prefer to remain at home during the current social distancing restrictions and the impact this has had on hospital and hospice visiting arrangements. Some people nearing the end of life will want to be at home. 

We are here to support friends, family and carers during this difficult time. Below you will find some guidance on caring for someone who is ill or dying at home. If you would prefer to speak to someone, please call our dedicated Community Advice & Listening Line on 01324 827383. This line is manned between the hours of 9am and 7pm, seven days a week. You can also request further information via email.
