About This Shop
Ashgate Hospicecare is an independent registered charity that provides specialist caring services, both in the Hospice and community settings, to adults with life-limiting illnesses in North Derbyshire. The needs of the patients, their families, friends, and carers are fundamental to the philosophy of the Hospice.
Our aim is to enable people with palliative care requirements to have access to appropriate professional assistance and care and to help patients achieve the best possible quality of life in accordance with their wishes. The Hospice has a full range of services provided by a multi-disciplinary team led by two Consultants in Palliative Medicine and includes Doctors, Nurses, Macmillan Community Nurse Specialists, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Social Workers, Lymphoedema Nurses, Hospital-Based Nurses, Family Support specialists, and Chaplains. The Clinical teamwork together with a support team of Caterers, Stewards, Housekeepers, Drivers, Groundsmen, Administrative, Finance and Fundraising staff to provide the excellent, specialised service that we are renowned for. The Hospice also provides education and training, support, and advice in palliative care to health workers in the community.
Fundraising is vital for Ashgate Hospicecare and its patients. Throughout North Derbyshire, Ashgate Hospicecare is known for the individual care we provide to all our patients. We are fortunate to have such a wonderful team who all help to make the atmosphere and services at the Hospice exceptional. However, providing these services and maintaining the high standards to which we are committed costs a great deal of money each year. The major part of these funds has to be raised purely through voluntary giving and the generosity of local people and companies.
