Many hospices are to receive funds in order to improve care it has come to light. A number of hospices will be aided by a £60million fund.
Not only will patients be better off because of the funding, but visitors will also benefit from it.
Some hospices are to be improved by the hospice surroundings being made more up-to-date, according to reports. This way, hospice patients will be able to see a change around them at the hospice for the better.
Based on a report by The Telegraph, friends/family members of certain hospice patients will be able to access overnight rooms, as some hospices will have these.
The Chief Executive of Help the Hospices, David Praill, has been reported as saying: “Currently, too many people do not get the care they want or need and the numbers needing care continue to increase.
Mr. Praill added: “Together, we face the challenge to ensure that people receive the best possible care at the end of life, irrespective of where they choose to be cared for, where they live or what condition they have. This funding will make a huge difference to the quality, dignity and compassion of the care provided.”
Deputy PM Nick Clegg explained that due to funding, some hospices would be modernised where appropriate, and that dying patients would receive more support.
Hospices care for those people who are dying or who are incurably ill. Care includes offering comfort to patients.
