The Naomi House staffing team includes fully qualified nurses and carers, all of whom are trained to provide specialist one-to-one palliative care services for children and young people facing life-limiting or life-threatening illnesses, as well as for their families. We are also supported by a team of GPs and consultant paediatricians who each offer a 24 hour on-call service.
The charity has two purpose-built facilities: Naomi House cares for children up to the age of 16, while Jacksplace is for young people aged 16 and upwards.
Upon the opening of Jacksplace in 2010, the team began to provide care packages for young people once they reached the age of 16. This initiative involved offering patients transitional care to aid and support them on their move from Naomi House across to Jacksplace.
The main services offered by Naomi House include respite care, end of life support, bereavement support and emergency hospice at home care. The team at Naomi House works in partnership with both families and professionals to provide physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual support throughout the child's care pathway.
Naomi House is funded by charitable and voluntary donations and recieves approximately 18% of its funding from the Department of Health. This helps to ensure that our specialist services can remain free of charge to young people and their families.
Children and young people must satisfy our referral criteria, and must be accepted by our review panel before they can visit. Click here
