Gifts in Wills form a very important part of the income we require to be able to provide the highest quality care for our community and help provide us with the financial stability to plan into the future. With these gifts we can support the ever-increasing number of patients, families and carers that need and value our help. The illustration below shows some of the different ways that Gifts in Wills are used across our community and demonstrates just a few of the many different types of support that we provide.

 

A day of care from the Hospice Community Team:

Your gift of £2,252 will help patients to be cared for at home in the comfort of familiar surroundings, where they feel safe and are fully informed and supported.

 

A day of care on our Inpatient Unit:

A gift of £5,474 means our specialist team can help patients to manage their symptoms before returning home, or if they choose, it will enable them to die with dignity within the comfort and security of the Hospice.

 

A week of care from the Hospice Community Team:

With a kind gift of £20,900, our Hospice Community Team will help patients to be cared for in their own home, so they can carry on living as independently as possible and prevent unnecessary admission to Hospital.

 

A week of care on our Inpatient Unit:

With a gift of £38,426 our team of Doctors, Nurses and Healthcare Assistants can provide personalised around-the-clock care for a week. This removes the responsibility of providing care from loved ones, so they can focus on making lasting precious moments together.

 

 

Specialist dementia care for a year:

Our award-winning Dementia Nurse Specialists are responding to ever-increasing demand for support and guidance from local families. A significant gift of over £150,000 will help people living with dementia and provide crucial physical and emotional support to their loved ones.

 

A year of care in the community:

A substantial gift of £800,000 will enable out Hospice Community Team to support patients and their families by fulfilling their wishes to be cared for in the place of their choosing. “We had had the conversation when my husband’s diagnosis became terminal. He was able to talk about his wishes and he was very clear that he wanted to stay at home with me. He passed away, peacefully at home. It was all I could have wished for his ending to be, as he was sleeping and calm, and simply slipped away”.
