Making the difference when it matters the most
Keech Hospice Care is the adult hospice for Luton and south Bedfordshire, and the children’s hospice for Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Milton Keynes.
As a charity, we provide free, specialist care for adults and children with life-limiting and terminal illnesses as well as vital support for their family and friends.
We are one of the very few hospice charities in the UK which supports and cares for both children and adults.
Our excellent care supports children and adults to live pain and symptom free, to spend untroubled time with their family and friends, to understand what is happening to them, to stay out of hospital and to make the most of the time they have.
Our care is not just provided at the hospice itself but in the hospital, school, care or family home – wherever support is needed the most.
As leaders in our field, our excellent standard of care extends to support a patient’s family, friends, neighbours and colleagues for as long as they need us afterwards. We offer emotional, spiritual and practical support, and our care does not stop at death. For these families, when it seems as though nothing will be the same again, Keech Hospice Care is there to help.
Our belief today remains the same as when our hospice first opened its doors over 25 years ago. There are no second chances to get it right so, at Keech Hospice Care, we do everything we can to ensure our patients’ wishes are respected, they are given the support and care they need from the day they are diagnosed, and - when the time does come - we support them to achieve a peaceful death.
As a charity, we rely on our supporters for around 70% of our funding. This means we need to raise over £6 million every year to continue our specialist care for children and adults, and their families. We’re enormously grateful for whatever you can do or give
