Hospice Care Week 2018

Back to Events

Date: 8th October 2018 - 14th October 2018


Hospice Care Week from 8th - 14th October 2018 gives us an excuse to talk about the extraordinary work that hospices do.

This year during Hospice Care Week we are launching our “Did you know?” campaign.

As well as sharing some interesting facts we will be out and about in the local community we serve asking “Did you know that your local Hospice has to raise most of its money but provides its services FREE of charge?” This research will be via a voting vox pop in libraries and our roving roadshow visiting key shopping destinations during the week.

You can find us in Allington, Borough Green, Coxheath, Headcorn, Larkfield, Lenham, Snodland, Staplehurst and West Malling libraries. Please, if you are passing take a second to pop in and answer the question yes or no!

You can meet some of the team who are really excited about meeting you out and about on;

Monday 8th October in Aylesford Retail Park (10am-2pm) Tuesday 9th October outside Waitrose, Kings Hill (10am-2pm) Thursday 11th October in West Malling High Street (10am-2pm)

On Wednesday 10th October, our award winning dementia specialist team will be running a conference (booked up) about the hospice care approach to dementia “Looking beyond dementia to the person inside”. You can join in the conversation using #BeyondDementia.

Throughout the week we would be really interested in hearing your stories. If you would like to share your Hospice Hero story or why you Heart My Hospice please email
