Covid-19 is affecting us all but Prospect Hospice remains operational in order to support the increasing number of our community needing end of life support. Here you'll find lots of information about the virus and information and advice that we think will help you at this time.
Prospect Hospice has been providing end of life care to the people of Swindon and north east Wiltshire for over 40 years. Find out more about where we've come from and who we are here.
Find out about the range of end-of-life care services that we offer to patients and their families. These are designed to provide compassionate, personalised support during every stage of a life-limiting illness in every kind of care setting, to anyone who needs it, free of charge.
We couldn’t do what we do without considerable support from our local community. Find out all the different ways in which you can support Prospect Hospice, including fundraising, volunteering and purchasing from our shops. All contributions are greatly appreciated.
You will need to bring your own toiletries, nightwear, day clothes, slippers and shoes. You might also wish to bring small personal effects such as photographs that are important to you.
Please also bring with you any medicines, dressings or other items relating to treatments you may be having at home. This will help us in planning your care while your are with us.
If you are unsure about what to bring, please get in touch with the inpatient unit – the telephone number is at the bottom of the page, under ‘Contact Us’.
We are very happy for you to use your mobile phone during your stay, but please remember to bring your charger too.
Please avoid bringing large amounts of money or valuables as storage is limited.
When you arrive at Prospect Hospice you will be welcomed by a nurse and shown to your bedroom or bed area.
Once you are settled we will make sure you are comfortable and offer you and your family refreshments. If you have any medications, please give them to the nurse who has welcomed you – we will store them for you or return them to your family to take home.
Shortly after your arrival you will be seen by a doctor and a nurse who will ask you to share your thoughts about your admission and outline what you would like us to achieve for you during your stay. We will also explore how you feel we can best meet your personal care and support needs.
