We’re ready to start our £5.3m expansion and redevelopment to support more patients and families in Worcestershire – but now we urgently need your help to raise the final £1.4m.
Currently areas of our hospice building in Worcester are bursting at the seams. With your help, we can build a bigger hospice to better support our current patients and reach the unmet need of thousands of local people in the future, offering the right care and support when they need it most.
Your new hospice will offer:
Larger rooms suitable for exercise based groups, eg adapted Tai Chi, yoga, strength and balance.
Specialist exercise studio with programmes designed by our physiotherapists
A kitchen where our occupational therapists will help patients learn how to improve day-to-day living at home to encourage independence.
Counselling rooms for supporting more patients and loved ones
Rooms for supporting more carers: we offer them time to discuss their concerns as well as practical and financial advice both during a person’s illness and into bereavement.
Open art studio – for patients and loved ones to express feelings through creativity.
Complementary therapy rooms for treatments including reflexology and aromatherapy massage
Music and horticultural therapy spaces where patients and families can benefit from the therapeutic impact on their health and wellbeing
A spacious social and eating area will be at the heart of the hospice building, offering a comfortable place for patients, families, groups and volunteers to meet, chat and support each other
A reconfigured, homely, light reception area where you will be greeted with a warm, understanding welcome.
With our new, expanded building we’ll be able to support people from the point they are diagnosed, improving their quality of life and offering support to their family.
Coming here, talking to people and realising you are not alone is incredibly important. Having a warm, homely and calm space where we can sit and talk will help me feel better
