Demelza Kent OverviewDemelza Kent is a 10-bedded hospice providing a large range of hospice and care services to children, young people and their families.

Life-limited or life threatened children or young people and their families benefit from a wide range of facilities that include a Multi-Sensory room, Soft Play, a Hydrotherapy Pool, and The Inclusion Zone (TIZ) for young people.

Our Care Team is led by Children's Palliative Care Nurses and consists of Children's Palliative Care Assistants, Family Support Workers and other Ancillary Support Staff.

One of our aims is to make the most of every moment that the child or young person spends at Demelza. Parents have described having the opportunity of an undisturbed night's sleep as pure luxury.

At the end of the child or young person's illness, we offer a comprehensive service of support using a Bereavement Suite - known as the Hop Garden. We share our expertise in childhood bereavement as widely as possible within our community.

We offer:
  • Specialist short-term planned breaks
  • Emergency short breaks
  • Palliative care and symptom control
  • End-of-life care
  • Day Care
  • Information, advice and practical assistance, including stepped discharge from hospital to home
  • Social and family support
  • 24 hour telephone support
  • Open ended bereavement counseling and support
