Garden House Hospice Care
Garden House Hospice Care provides free specialist palliative care for patients, families and carers facing life limiting illnesses from across North Hertfordshire, Stevenage and towns and villages in Central Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire.
Every day three people are told they could benefit from our services. Working with our medical team of highly experienced doctors, nurses and other specialists they will have access to services such as our Inpatient Unit, community nursing, physiotherapy, bereavement support for adults and children, occupational therapy, complementary therapy and spiritual care.
The end of your life is as important as the beginning and the middle. Our expert care is tailored to the unique needs of our community members, focussing on their wellbeing, supporting them to live well with their diagnosis to the end of their day in the setting of their choice, without discrimination. Our vision is to help provide the very highest care to the growing numbers of people that will need our services over the next 20 years.
It costs us £5.4 million a year to run our Hospice, and although we receive some NHS funding, we need to raise £9,500 every single day to provide our services 365 days a year
This covers everything from the toys and art equipment we use when counselling young people, the costs of medication, the bills we pay to clean our building, keep it warm and run our medical equipment and facilities such as our gym in the Hawthorne Centre, the salaries we pay and training we give to our expert staff, and much more.
It is a lot of money, but together, with the support of people like you, we WILL be there for the people who need us today, tomorrow and in the future.
