Giving choice when it matters

ACCORD@Home

We know that some people in their final days of life would prefer to be at home if at all possible - and be with those who are important to them.

However, worries about what might happen and the burden on families often results in people going into hospital to die. 

ACCORD@Home service aims to provide personal, practical and emotional support at this crucial time in people's lives to enable them to stay at home right to the end.  

The ACCORD@Home Team work with District Nursing Teams, social services and others in the community to provide care and support for people at home.

Accompanied Discharge home from the Hospice

When someone wishes to go home from the hospice for their end of life care, we will work to ensure a streamlined handover of care from the ACCORD Inpatient Unit to community teams. ACCORD@Home will support that discharge, reduce the stress and anxiety often felt by patients and their families prior to discharge and aims to minimise any potential discharge problems that may arise which could cause a delay. In a number of cases this will be a transitional arrangement that remains in place only until people are more settled again at home under the care of other care giving services

End of Life Care

The dying phase of someone’s life can be very complex, symptom driven and emotional. When people choose to die at home it can be a very worrying time for their families and other carers. The ACCORD@Home team will supplement existing care arrangements at home. The team will utilise the broadest range of the multi-disciplinary palliative care team to support  patients and their families, ensuring that during the last few weeks of life  all involved feel fully supported at this difficult time.

Crisis Intervention

There are situations where it becomes increasingly difficult for patients to remain in their own home at the end of their life. Symptoms can become difficult to manage and individual care needs may become increasingly difficult to meet. This service has the ability to offer a multi-disciplinary assessment and respond to those patients where the team would intervene to support the patient achieve stability again and to stay at home and avoid any unwanted admission to hospice or hospital.

Can I be referred for Hospice at Home care?

This new two year pilot service will expand ACCORD’s ability to offer a wider range of support directly to patients in their own homes. This is important because many patients would prefer to receive the specialist care ACCORD offers. 

At this time, only ACCORD medical teams will be able to internally refer patients for ACCORD at Home care.
