Hospices offer people a place to die with dignity, but their numbers are so limited that most people die in hospital or in a care home. This paper describes the development of a telehospice toolbox which it is believed will help to replicate hospice care in the homes of people in the community, thus enabling many more people to be supported in the way that they want at the end of their lives. The toolbox contains a number of different technology items that can be selected on a per‐patient basis to allow a dying patient and their family the best quality of life during their most stressful experience.
