Andy’s at St Andrew's Hospice offers free palliative care to children and young people from birth to the age of 25 with any progressive life-limiting illness.
Patients come from the whole of Lincolnshire, and Hull and the East Riding, and mainly use us for respite care, either for a day or an in-patient stay. This not only helps the youngster but also family and/or carers too. Referrals can be made by anyone, but consent is sought from the youngster’s parents and GP, where appropriate.
Four bedrooms are available, which can be booked in advance for respite care. Weekends and school holidays are busiest, so admissions are prioritised on a needs basis. Four day unit places are available seven days a week.
There are no set visiting hours (but parental permission is required) and pets are very welcome. Parents/carers may phone at any time and also stay overnight. And there’s no set routine… our patients are encouraged to be as independent as possible, and they tell us how they want to be cared for.
Our services don’t stop there. Home Liaison provides support and advice at home, and we offer complementary therapies. Family Support Workers offer support for families on emotional and social care issues, and there’s a monthly carers’ support group. A Registered Sick Children’s Nurse is available for parents and carers too. Counselling can take place at Andy’s at St Andrew's Hospice and at home, and our chaplain is on hand for spiritual support.
Andy’s at St Andrew's Hospice is a home from home; we have about 120 members of staff, enabling us to provide 24-hour care, seven days a week, and about 500 volunteers who support all aspects of the hospice.
