We provide care for young adults up to the age of 25, supporting them and their families through the transition from children’s to adult services.
Children who come to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice can attend our Young Adults Group from the age of 14, so they can be around people of a similar age and enjoy lots of new and exciting activities together.
When your child reaches 18, they will move from children’s hospitals to adult hospitals. This means changing consultants and a nursing team that they have grown familiar with, while at the same time leaving school, finding colleges and sometimes looking for their own accommodation.
This can be a lot to deal with, so our Care Team are on hand to help with any decisions, and offer you and your child advice and support, both at home and in the hospice.
We can also support young adults into services within their own community, across education, housing, and health and social care organisations. Our aim is to help them to become as independent in the community as possible.
