We are your local Hospice.
We are a charity providing free care and support to adults in our community who have a life-limiting illness and their families.
Many people think that hospices are all about dying. But through our many different services, we support people to live as well as they can with their illness. From the moment of diagnosis through to bereavement support.
At our Living Well Centre, we put the emphasis on living with a life-limiting illness. You can drop in and get expert advice; you don’t need to feel alone. One of our nurses will talk you through all the support, different classes and treatments that you and your carer or family will be able to access that will help with your healthcare journey.
We maintain the highest professional standards so that our care is the very best it can be. And at the heart of everything we do is compassion – because we understand that kindness and understanding make the biggest difference of all.
Many people are very surprised when they find out that we are a charity because all of our care is delivered free. 80% of our income is generated by legacies, donations, fundraising and our retail shops.
We know that it is only possible to provide the support and care that we do through the ongoing support of you: our local community.
“One of the doctors came to speak to us on the first day and after he had finished discussing David and all of his care needs, he asked me how I was as he knew that I had been in hospital. At that point, I really felt that this was a place where people are special, everybody cares and they looked after both of us.”Read More
