The Aim of Hospices.
A hospice is a house, or home, dedicated to the care of terminally ill patients. The first hospice was set up in 1900.
Charitable hospices in the UK raise the bulk of their funding through support from their local communities including: fundraising, hospice charity shops, legacies, hospice lotteries and investments. They receive some statutory funding although levels vary across the UK, between the different nations and also within different regions.
In Scotland hospices receive on average 39 per cent of their income from the Government, in England it is 32 per cent, in Northern Ireland it is 37 per cent and in Wales it is 27 per cent.
On average children’s hospices in the UK receive 15 per cent of their funding from the Government, less than a fifth of their expenditure.
The purpose of hospices is to care for and support patients and their family and friends.
There are 3 main aims of hospice care:
- To relieve pain. Today it is thought it is not necessary for terminally ill patients to die in pain. Hospices specialize in pain control. Hospice staff believe all pain, however severe can be brought under control.
- To help patients, friends and relatives face up to death. Opportunities are given to the patients and to family members to discuss death and dying.
- To care for the emotional needs of friends and family. Hospices help families cope with bereavement before, during and after the death of their relative.
