Hospice care is not just a building, it is a way of caring for people. Our care aims to improve the lives of people whose illness may not be curable. We help people to live as actively as possible after diagnosis to the end of their lives, however long that might be. We place the highest value on respect and choice.
Our consultant-led team of doctors, nurses and other professional staff provide expert care and support for local people with terminal or life-limiting illnesses and their families, in the hospice and at home. We not only take care of patients' physical needs, we consider their emotional, spiritual and social needs too. And we support families and close friends, both during illness and in bereavement.
We care for patients throughout their illness, helping to improve their wellbeing and quality of life. We also provide compassionate, dedicated and dignified care for patients at the end of their life.
We're an independent charity mainly funded by the people of Bolton. To continue providing free care and support we need to raise £3.4 million a year through donations, fundraising and gifts in wills.

"The initial welcome and smile of the receptionist to the human, non jargonal conversations that we have with the nurses and doctors, the cleanliness of the building and the willingness to care for her, do everything to make this exceptionally difficult time as manageable as it possibly can be, " (A comment from a card received from the relative of a patient.)
