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.
Our Living Well Services 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.
Whether in our Living Well Services, our Hospice or at home, we maintain the highest professional standards so that our care is the very best it can be.
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. 90% 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.
The quality of our care is very important to us and therefore we make every effort to ensure our services meet the expectations of those whom we serve.
