Campden Home Nursing CIO (previously known as Campden Area Home Nursing Trust) is a charitable trust established in 1990. The hospice care at home team provide palliative nursing care for the terminally ill who wish to be cared for at home, in their last weeks of life. They provide specialist nursing care for adults who have life limiting conditions. The service delivers regulated activities in people’s homes, they also provide non-regulated activities at the location such as counselling, support groups, complimentary therapies and the serious illness support (SIS) service. We only inspected services that formed part of the regulated activities.

The hospice care at home team helps people stay at home if that is their preferred place of death. They provide supplementary and complementary support to the district nursing service and other teams involved with the patient’s care. The nursing team consists of 22 registered nurses, all with a specialist interest in palliative care. They employ 2 bank healthcare assistants who, under the supervision of the nurse manager, provide support to patients and help with personal care.

The service is offered to anyone living within a defined geographic area and covers parts of Gloucestershire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire.

The location is registered with the Care Quality Commission to provide the following regulated activities:

  • Treatment of disease, disorder or injury.
