The Butterfly Hospice - Your Local Hospice for Local People

Who We Are?

About

Welcome to the Butterfly Hospice

The Butterfly Hospice is dedicated to improving the quality of life for patients and families facing a life limiting illness by providing choice, care and support in a Hospice setting.

When you or someone you care about is seriously ill, you want to know they’re getting the best possible care and treatment. We do too. Our hospice provides 24 hour patient care to those who need it most.

Our services are for people aged 18 and over that are referred to us by a healthcare professional.

Our care teams include doctors, nurses, therapists, and spiritual support. It is our aim to provide the best possible, personalised care 24 hours a day for the duration of someone’s stay. Our average length of stay is 10 days. The unit is staffed by a clinical team with specialised skills in dealing with the physical and emotional effects of life limiting illnesses including cancer, heart disease and neurological conditions.

We aim to enrich people’s quality of life by relieving symptoms such as pain, breathlessness and other distressing problems through the skills of our experienced and caring teams. Our patients come to us for respite, symptom control and for care at the end of life.

We would be happy to talk to you about how you can fundraise, volunteer or support the work of the Hospice. Call in to the Charity Office Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm, or you can contact us on: Tel: 01205 311222 or Email: enquiries@butterflyhospice.org.uk .
