To be at the heart of our community and provide home nursing, emotional support, complementary therapies, and lymphoedema care when and where needed.Every year Hospice at Home West Cumbria needs to raise over £1 million.
Hospice at Home West Cumbria, established in 1987, was founded by Cockermouth GP Dr Brian Herd with a group of nurses and nurse managers all working locally in West Cumbria. We now employ more than 60 staff and are supported by over 200 volunteers. Hospice at Home West Cumbria covers 400 square miles along the western side of Cumbria. We provide care to a scattered rural population from Maryport, right down to Millom and into the Eskdale and Wasdale valleys.
Our services include
- Emotional support
- Home nursing
- Complementary therapies
- Lymphoedema care
All our services are delivered for free to patients, families and carers who need our care and support.
Every year Hospice at Home West Cumbria needs to raise over £1 million to continue to deliver our services.
All funds raised directly benefit local people and help us continue to give people in West Cumbria with life-limiting illnesses the choice to remain in their own homes, close to loved ones, giving them the care they need.
If you or your team would like to volunteer, plan an event or become a corporate partner to support our charity, please get in touch.
