Claire House Children's Hospice)
Laughter, positivity and care, that’s what Claire House is all about. Located on the Wirral, our ten-bedded hospice provides respite, end-of-life and bereavement care for children and young adults with complex medical needs, up to the age of 23. We’re also there to support the whole family, providing support and counselling for as long as is needed.
But our work extends far beyond the hospice grounds. Our specialist nursing team also work in the community through our Hospice to Home scheme, which offers care and support in the family home.
We look after families from across Merseyside, Cheshire, North Wales, West Lancashire and the Isle of Man and provide a home-from-home environment for our children and young people, helping enrich their lives so they can live them to the full.
We currently look after 160 families, with each child coming to Claire House for 17 nights a year. During their stay with us, each child has at a minimum of one-to-one care. They can spend time in our hydrotherapy pool, enjoy a music therapy session, sing karaoke in The Den or take part in arts and crafts therapy. And the whole family can be there with them, with private bedrooms and a lounge for Mum and Dad to unwind and take a break from their roles as carers.
