Sponsor a Nurse 

Help our nurses be there for everyone who needs them.
It's often not until people experience hospice care that they truly understand the difference it can make to the well-being of patients and their families. 

We're very proud to have been providing hospice care in the communities of Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Brentwood for over 35 years but demand on our services is growing.

More and more people are being diagnosed with complex medical conditions and our nurses are experts in life-limiting illness - that means illnesses such as motor neurone disease, heart diseases, respiratory failure and cancer.  
Our 18-bed ward offers expert care to people who need more intensive medical care towards the end of their lives. 

The nurses and health care assistants in our Hospice at Home team help people to fulfil their wish to die peacefully at home, surrounded by the people they love.

Last year, they spent over 12,000 hours in the homes of our patients. 
And our community nurse specialists make thousands of phone calls and visit people in the community every year, helping ease their symptoms and manage their medication. 

Our nurses play an important role in reassuring families and carers who often feel anxious and isolated and will refer both patients and carers to other support services they may benefit from. 
In the video below Clinical Nurse Specialist Janna Hughes gives an insight into her role in the community and we also hear from Fred and June about how hospice care has improved their well-being.

For just £3 a month you can help people like Fred and June.
