When the hospice began in 1984, our care and support was provided in people's own homes. For over 35 years, it is where the majority of our care taken place. During the coronavirus pandemic, we are still caring. However, for your own wellbeing we are now caring for you via conference calls and will continue to work with all your care providers.
Our team of hospice nurses have visited people in their own homes for over 30 years. Although a lot has changed over those 30 years, one thing remains very much the same, it is still where the majority of our care takes place.
