  • Welcome to Hospice Hope

    Figures from the 2011 Census relating to North West Leicestershire reveal that 25% of households contain a person with a long-term health problem or disability, and more recently the  2015 Leicestershire Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) reveals 592 people are classified as requiring palliative care in our area, with numbers of people with life limiting long term illnesses also set to rise.  That means more and more of us are likely to be in need of the care that Hospice Hope provides, complementary to that provided by the NHS.

    Hospice Hope has always recognised the need for pastoral care in the community. 

    As patients sadly approach the end of their lives, the NHS offers no local day care provision to support them or their carers, as well as offering little or no pastoral support in coping with a life limiting illness on a day to day basis.

    With our three Support Cafés in Ashby and Coalville / Whitwick and Ibstock, we have tried to fill part of this gap. In addition, we are determined to fund and provide a Day Hospice for local patients and their carers and we are currently actively pursuing this goal.

     

    Our plan is that the Day Hospice will be operational, eventually to open 5 days a week, to offer support to patients and carers, including complementary therapies and counselling.

    Our vision that North West Leicestershire needs a small hospice remains and with the support of local organisations, Government, the NHS and you; then we believe that this can happen.Until that time arrives, we will continue to work tirelessly for those patients and their carers in North West Leicestershire with life limiting illnesses.

    We would be delighted to talk to you or any group that you belong to about this most important issue, that could affect any of us.
