Our care

If you or someone you know has been told they have an illness and might not get better, then you may have heard of palliative care. This is the care that is given to patients with an illness for which there is no known cure.

Our team consists of specialist nurses, doctors, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, bereavement counsellors, social workers, complementary therapists and spiritual care support. Our expertise means we do all we can to help with physical symptoms like pain, breathlessness and anxiety. We can also help with practical problems too, such as making changes in someone’s home.

We go the extra mile to help patients, their families and carers to live life to the full. Weddings, christenings, hair cut’s, craft sessions, massages and a chat over a cup of tea, all help patients and families make the most of the time they have together. We rely on the tireless work and generosity of our community to continue to offer our essential services. We can’t raise this money and continue to provide our care without your help.

Our staff and volunteers provide a respectful space where patients can chat and laugh, make friends, and ask questions. It’s also a place where we understand sadness and listen to fears.

All of our Hospice services are free of charge to patients and families.
