Care at Rainbows
We provide hospice care for children and young people aged 0 to 30 years with life-limiting and life threatening conditions, and their whole family, across the East Midlands. The care we offer is wide ranging; palliative care and end of life care, symptom management, emergency care, respite and short breaks.
The support we give extends to the whole family, into bereavement and beyond for as long as each family needs us.
Rainbows has a multi-disciplinary Family Support team who recognise the specific needs of all family members. We aim to join families on their journey offering holistic support flexibly.
End of Life Care
Our care team are available to help them think about the choices they may wish to consider when their child nears the end of their life. We provide ongoing emotional support at home, at the hospice and over the phone.
Support & Counselling
We provide ongoing emotional support at home, at the hospice and over the phone. Bereavement counselling is available as well as support groups.
Symptom management is the management of common symptoms associated with life-limiting conditions. It is often used to refer to symptoms that are primarily physical, but in palliative care, symptom management also includes attention to psycho-social and spiritual aspects of symptoms where appropriate.
Short Breaks and Respite
The hospice provides a fully accessible and specially equipped, home-from-home environment with specially decorated bedrooms for the children.
Rainbows puts children and young people first. Everyone working for us is absolutely committed to ensuring the comfort, well-being and safety of all the children, young people and the families who we care for.
