What we do
Southern Area Hospice Services care for patients and their families living primarily in the Southern Trust area, offering specialist palliative and end of life care. The main aim of the hospice is to help patients who have received a palliative diagnosis live well with their condition. We strive to support patients to achieve the best possible quality of life from first receiving a palliative diagnosis, until the end of life, whenever that may be. We also offer ongoing support to patients’ families and carers.
Hospice care means skilled, compassionate care, provided by a multi-disciplinary team offering holistic patient centred support which includes symptom and pain management, psychological and spiritual support, complementary therapies, end of life care and bereavement support.
Southern Area Hospice Services relies heavily on the generosity of local people and the support of our volunteers who help staff deliver services in many ways, from patient care to fundraising.
All our services are provided free of charge, and we rely heavily on fundraising to enable us to care and support patients and their families. This year we have an ambitious fundraising target of £3 million in order to maintain the level of care currently available. This equates to approximately £250,000 per month or £8,200 per day.
