Manchester Children's Respite Care


Respite and end of life care


What it does

This hospice, through close ties with multi-agency teams across the area and consultants at Christie Hospital, provide high-quality palliative care for families at a difficult time. Families receive support for as long as they feel the need and medical cover is provided by four dedicated GPs who attend the hospice daily and are on call whenever required. The hospice also offers respite care where children and young people are given the chance to have a break from their normal routine. The diversely talented care team provide tailor-made support which allows children to meet with others in the same situation and get involved in activities which may be new to them. Family and siblings stays at the hospice can also be arranged.
