Based in the heart of the Wyre Forest, they offer specialist care and support to patients, families and carers who are dealing with life limiting illness and bereavement. From symptom control, complementary therapy, relaxation classes, hairdressing through to spiritual care, Kemp Hospice aims to address a multitude of patient needs. They do this from their Day Hospice which is open for patients on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, in their outpatient clinics and in the patient’s home. Their Hospice at Home team provides one to one nursing support to enable those patients in the last few weeks or days of their lives to remain in the comfort of their own homes, if that is what they wish.
