Dove House Hospice is a charity providing excellent care for people in the local community with life limiting illnesses.
We are specialists in palliative care, which is the total care of patients whose illness is no longer curable and for whom the goal must be quality of life.
Our services are available to anyone over the age of eighteen years who has an illness which can no longer be cured. Care is provided for patients with cancer, neurological illnesses, heart diseases, respiratory diseases, HIV/AIDS and many other illnesses. Our care incorporates physical, social, psychological and spiritual support delivered by a multi-professional team who embrace the family and significant others throughout the patient's illness.
Dove House Hospice is maintained by some Government funding but the majority of our running costs is raised in the local community and so there is no charge for any of our services.
Set in beautiful gardens, Dove House Hospice is a 'home from home' where patients and their families can feel at ease in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. The patient and their family are at the centre of everything we do; the patient - not the illness - is the focus of our care. We aim to give not only specialist care but special care, embracing our patients with warmth, understanding and friendship whilst offering them and their families guidance and support during difficult times.
