Service summary

Zoe's Place Baby Hospice

Zoё's Place Trust is a registered Charity providing palliative, respite and end of life care to babies and infants aged from birth to five years suffering from life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. The majority of the support we give at Zoë’s Place is respite care. All of the babies at the Hospice have a life-limiting or life-threatening condition and require differing levels of 24 hour support on a one-to-one basis. Zoë’s Place offers our parents and Carers a chance to recharge their batteries or to spend time with their other children. During the time that the child stays with us, we provide various different therapies in order to try and improve quality of life. At Zoë's Place, we are not just here to support the baby, but the whole family. Our Nurses are trained in how to support families dealing with difficult issues or bereavements. Before your child starts to attend we will visit you and talk to you about what care your child needs. We will carry out a care needs assessment and write your child’s individual care plan in partnership with you. We will chat to you on a regular basis to make sure that we keep the care plans up to date. Also we contact the other people who support you e.g. the dietitian and discuss your child’s needs with them. Your child will have an individual play care plan which tells our team what your child enjoys. Most of the day your child will be involved in play, messy play, sensory stimulation, singing and listening to music. Our play leader always has new activity ideas for our children to try which keeps them busy. Additionally your child will be administered their medication and have any clinical treatment that they require during their stay.
