Our vision is to be the lasting and thriving provider of free care to all people affected by life limiting illness in our community. This will be made possible by a community working together continually to share in the delivery of the most assuring, equally accessible and advanced care available.
Our values are important to us and are at the heart of everything we do at Willen Hospice.
Our Values are: Compasssion, Ambition, Respect & Excellence.
We focus on four key areas: specialist symptom control, emotional support, spiritual support and care for carers.
Often the most distressing aspect of living with life-limiting illnesses is the types of pain and symptoms which can arise. Our team of dedicated staff and volunteers can give specialist support to patients and their family members, to help deal with the physical and emotional effects of both their illness and treatments. Our care gives real comfort, eases pain and reduces anxiety for patients and their loved ones.
We work closely with GPs, hospitals, community nursing staff and social workers to ensure that our specialist care is practical, informed and supportive at all levels..
Patients receive care at our In-Patient Unit and Community Hub within the Hospice and also within the community with our Community Nursing Teams.
Our services are free of charge to those we care for but to continue to offer that care we need to raise around £4.7million every year. Within the Business Development Teams there are 13 charity shops, Events & Fundraising teams, and a Lottery team who work together with our community to raise the vital funds needed.
