Iris House Children's Hospice
At Iris House we promise our families a quality care service, built on medical best practise. Our carers undergo two days of intensive theoretical training, followed by up to six weeks of practical training. Carers are police cleared and hold a level one first aid certificate, our senior carers hold a level three first-aid certificate. Our care service is available in the form of four-hour community based sits and hospice day and overnight sessions. All our respite care, support and therapy services are 100% free.
The community sits take place in the comfort of your own home. Our community carers will arrive at your home in uniform and equipped with a medical kit and appropriate toys, they would of already have been briefed on your child’s needs and any relevant safety information. Each hour spent with your child will be accurately documented by the carer and left in your child’s home care file.
