Welcome to Weston Hospicecare
Weston Hospicecare provides palliative care for people living with a life-limiting illness in Weston-super-Mare and the surrounding areas as far afield as Highbridge, Burnham-on-Sea, Cheddar, Draycott, Yatton, Wedmore, Congresbury, Blagdon and Wrington.
We work to make sure that everyone we care for can live as well as they can for as long as they can. With a team of dedicated professionals who work both in our hospice and out in our community, we strive to ensure that people can be treated and cared for both physically and emotionally in their place of choice, be that here at the hospice, in their own home or in a care home.
If you or your family member or loved one has been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, we will do our best to provide help and support. Our doctors, nurses, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, complementary therapists, chaplain and counsellor all work together to provide those we care for with excellent professional care, which is also supported by our wonderful team of dedicated and experienced volunteers.
We provide our services free of charge, but only 20% of our total running costs are funded by the NHS – leaving us to raise more than £3 million each year.
The rest is raised by our volunteers, shops and fundraising team, who all work tirelessly throughout the year to support our patients and their families.
Whether you have been personally touched by the work we do or just want to support a great local cause, there are lots of ways you can help support the hospice!
Our patients are at the centre of everything we do. Each one has a unique story to tell, one that offers a unique perspective on their illness and on our services.
Whether you follow us on Facebook, talk with us on Twitter and browse our blog, there are lots of ways to keep up to date with the latest news from the hospice.
