Derian at Home
Care and support is available in the family home for the times when children suddenly become poorly but everyone wants to stay at home. This is particularly the case when children are moving towards the end stages of life.
In order to use our Derian at Home service you must already have been referred to us. If you wish your child to be referred to Derian House, either you or a relevant professional can do this. Please contact a member of the Care Team for more information on 01257 233 300.
The Derian at Home team work as part of the Derian House Care Team and are familiar faces. They link with local children’s community nurses and doctors to ensure care and support is co-ordinated and planned.
We recognise that some children are poorly on many occasions and this is just part of their condition – it may not be that they are in the end stages of life, and some nursing support at home may be helpful at these times.
