About Hospice At Home West Cumbria
About This Shop
Hospice at Home West Cumbria provides services to people situated in the western part of Cumbria. We are the only provider of hospice services in this area.
Established in 1987 we have developed excellence in home-based palliative care. We are regarded nationally as providing a high-quality model of hospice at-home care and services.
Home nursing has always been at the heart of Hospice at Home West Cumbria. We provide skilled nursing support on a one-to-one basis to any adult with a life-limiting illness. This support is given in the patient’s home or residential setting enabling them to remain in their chosen environment.
In addition to our home nursing service, we provide patient, family and bereavement support services, and lymphoedema care. Over the years Hospice at Home West Cumbria has cared for thousands of patients and their families through difficult times in their lives. In our first year, we were able to support 40 patients and their families in West Cumbria. Last year we offered a wider range of support to over 700 patients.
Although our service has grown the quality of our work remains the same.
Hospice at Home West Cumbria must raise over £1 million each year to maintain and develop its services. Only a quarter of this comes from the NHS. The rest must be raised through our fundraising activities. All services are provided FREE of charge.
We have three wonderful shops that are managed by our staff and shop volunteers. Despite running on a local charity budget they can compete with any national charity shop for the quality of goods, price, presentation, and customer service.
