Exciting new plans for healthcare in Hartlepool
Alice House Hospice is working with Thirteen Group to develop an exciting new Alice House Village for Hartlepool. The aim is to create an exceptional place for residents of all ages with long term conditions and disabilities in Hartlepool to live.
Following public consultations to gather feedback and address concerns, as well as the creation of a User Involvement Group to help shape services, Alice House Village will provide homes for life, a central Village Hub and 24 hour support. This will mean residents, their families and carers can have quality of life, regain balance and, if they choose to, die at home.
The Village Hub will host a variety of activities, clinics and social groups that will help combat loneliness as well as give carers meaningful opportunities for volunteering work and social stimulation.
Alice House Village will be designed with modern living in mind but will also be adapted for health needs. There will be homes for single occupation and some for families, 91 in total, predominantly bungalows with a number of apartments.
This concept has been formulated following feedback from the CQC Local System Review Report and some of the recommendations for improvement. Scrutiny of the Hartlepool Matters Implementation Plan highlighted a number of common goals and through this partnership aims to delivery on this collectively.
Chief Executive Officer at Alice House Hospice, Tracy Woodall said, “This is a really exciting development and an opportunity for Alice House to make history as the first Hospice to develop a Health Village with a true patient centric focus.”
“Alice House Village will also help reduce hospital admissions and pressures on the NHS because Alice House Care Teams will work alongside GP’s and Community Services to plan and give support and care in a resident’s own home or at the Village Hub.”
