Why do we need your help?
Hospice Aid UK has been raising funds and helping hospices in the UK for nearly 15 years. We have provided support in all types of ways, whether to help buy specialist equipment, cover hospice running costs, supply emergency funding or in other areas that can be difficult to get funding for. Hospices provide care for all ages, including children and young adults. There is no charge for hospice care and hospices rely heavily on public funding.
Over the past few years funding has become increasingly difficult due to the economic climate. We are now reaching out to you to help us fund hospices in need.
Any amount will count, whether large or small, in any currency. Your help today will help someone tomorrow.
What is Hospice care?
Hospice care is intended for people with a life limiting or terminal illness. Services are provided free of charge by a team of health care professionals who help patients to live as actively as they can to the end of their lives, and maximizes comfort by reducing pain and addressing physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs. Unlike other medical care, however, the focus of hospice care isn't to cure or treat the underlying disease. The goal of hospice care is to provide the highest quality of life possible for whatever time remains. This is also known as palliative care.
They offer a very special place of comfort, tranquillity and peacefulness.
