Founded in 1980, Nottinghamshire Hospice is a community-based palliative care centre which provides high quality care services to adults who have terminal and life-limiting illnesses, and their families and carers. We are regulated by the Care Quality Commission and all our services are delivered and based on individual patient needs: it is a way of caring for people.
We aim to add life to days for people that have been told that their illness cannot be cured. We help people who are thought to be in the last year of their life to live as actively and well as possible with care that puts the highest value on dignity, choice and respect.
The help and care our services provide to patients, and their loved ones, is holistic. We offer compassionate nursing care to help meet physical needs, social support to help tackle loneliness or isolation and counselling and chaplaincy to support spiritual needs.
Each year we need to raise £3 million to be able to deliver our current services which means we are reliant on the wonderful support of our local community.
Terminal and life-limiting illness can affect any family at any time. We want our local communities to continue to be able to live well and, with our support, die well. We want people to be assured that, if they or their family are affected, Nottinghamshire Hospice will be there to support them.
“I had so much help from these wonderful caring people when caring for husband Mick. He sadly passed away in June 2019. They looked after Mick while I had time for myself and overnight to give me a good night’s sleep. I can’t praise them enough . Now I visit the hospice to repay them by volunteering in the garden and keep in touch with this wonderful place and the people I have met there.“Liz Robinson
