The word ‘hospice’ can make people feel anxious. Death and dying are probably the last taboo in conversation and few people make plans for it. But a hospice focuses on the positives: providing patients with relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness to improve quality of life for them and their loved ones and to help them all look ahead.
Far from being places full of death, hospices tend to be full of life!
In fact a third of Trinity’s adult in-patients go home again after spending time here, and many patients never actually set foot in the hospice at all, being cared for at home instead.
That surprises many people, and there are lots of other myths around hospice care. Some people still think hospices are only for cancer patients, when we also care for people with a wide range of serious illness, such as motor neurone disease, heart and respiratory problems.
We sometimes get mixed up with other charities, especially those funding cancer research and nursing support, and there are still people who think hospices are part of the NHS. Our services cost over £7 million a year to run in 2015-16 but and incredible £5 million of that came from local peoples’ voluntary donations. It’s the generosity
