Rotherham Hospice’s care places the patient and not the illness at the centre of everything we do.
We are an independent charity and the only adult hospice in Rotherham for the people of Rotherham and surrounding villages. We support the community by providing a palliative care service that considers the needs of our patients to deliver the best level of symptom management.
The Hospice established their Day Hospice services in 1994 which today offers 75 Day Hospice places every week, and over the years have developed a 14 bed in-patient unit, allowing care to be delivered in a stress free environment. Furthermore the Hospice extends this service into the homes of many Rotherham people each year who wish to spend precious time in a familiar environment. Finally we have a dedicated bereavement team who support the loved ones of our patients during a difficult time. This service is free to our patients but means with annual running costs exceeding £5 million, funding through various means is crucial to the delivery of this care.
