Because you care we can always be there for our patients and their loved ones. 

At Garden House Hospice Care, our specialist doctors, nurses and clinicians deliver the personalised and compassionate care that people living with life-limiting illnesses, such as cancer and motor neurone disease, need and deserve. We support their loved ones too. Please stand alongside us, and those we support, to help make this possible. 


Regular donations, which can be any amount to suit your budget, help us to plan sustainably and sensibly for the future.

Caitriona's story

John-chats-with-his-children-from-his-bed-on-the-inpatient-unit


When Caitriona's husband, John, died on our Inpatient Unit, her thoughts quickly went to the couple's three children.


"I knew I had to put my grief to one side and focus on them. I had so many questions. How do I tell them the daddy they loved so much has died?"

 

When John, who had spindle cell sarcoma, was first referred to the Hospice five months earlier, their children started to see our children's counsellor, Tracey. According to Caitriona, they trusted Tracey from the start, meeting her regularly for one-to-one sessions. Tracey also visited their school, helping them be best prepared to support the children too.

 

Caitriona had no local family to lean on. Shortly after John died, she called Tracey. They discussed how she should talk to her children, and when.


"Immediately I felt comforted and supported. Me and my children weren't alone. When I say 'I wouldn't have got through it without Tracey', I genuinely mean that."

We always want to be here for people affected by a life-limiting illness. That is only possible thanks to your help.
