How do we help people?
We provide care for people from the age of 18 years upwards and this focuses on four key areas: specialist symptom control, emotional support, spiritual support and care for carers.
"Our vision is to be the lasting and thriving provider of free care to all people affected by life limiting illness in our community. This will be made possible by a community working together continually to share in the delivery of the most assuring, equally accessible and advanced care available."
Often the most distressing aspect of living with cancer is the types of pain and symptoms which can arise. Through our team of dedicated staff and volunteers we can give direct support to the patient and their family, should they so wish, to help deal with their physical, social, emotional and spiritual pain.
We work closely with GPs, hospitals, community nursing staff and social workers and endeavour to make sure that our specialist care is practical, informed and supportive at all levels.
Patients receive care within the Hospice building itself but also within the community via our specialist Community Nursing Teams.
Our services are provided 24 hours a day without any cost to patients or their families.
