about us

Bury Hospice is an independent registered charity delivering end of life care and providing support to terminally ill patients and their loved ones

Bury Hospice are The Best of Bury's Charity of the Year 2013


Our Care

Bury Hospice serves the people of the metropolitan borough of Bury: Prestwich, Whitefield, Radcliffe, Bury, Tottington and Ramsbottom.

Bury Hospice exists to provide specialised palliative care, helping patients and families facing terminal illness do so with dignity, independence, and free from pain. This care is provided both in the hospice for day patients, out patients and inpatients and is also in patients' own homes through our Hospice@Home service.

Much of the care provided to day and out patients is centred around helping patients come to terms with a terminal diagnosis, helping them to manage their symptoms and providing support, care and advice on spending what time they have left leading fulfilling and active lives. Inpatient and Hospice@Home care tends to be focussed on patients' final days and allows patients to spend precious time with their families around them whilst receiving specialised professional palliative care.

Other services provided include 24-hour professional advice, Consultant Out-Patient clinic, complementary therapies, counselling, medication checks, stress management and relaxation therapy sessions, home assessment visits, visitor support services, carer support, bereavement support and training and education.

 

"The care my Uncle John received at the Hospice was fantastic. The staff and volunteers do such a great job. It was very comforting for him to be so close to his family and friends, so they could come and visit him in his final days. The Hospice was very different to a hospital ward. He had his own room which was really nice and homely and the staff went out of their way to make him as comfortable as possible, nothing was too much trouble. My family still talks about how well he was cared for: it's often the little things that really count. For example, encouraging patients to get dressed every day and allowing visitors at any time. I don't think he would have received that level of care elsewhere." Gemma Atkinson

How You Can Help

All care across the whole range of Bury Hospice services is provided completely free of charge. With only 16% of our annual funding coming from the NHS, the Hospice has gained a track record in securing the funds necessary to deliver all of these services. In order to do so and to maintain the excellent levels of service provided by Bury Hospice, the clinical staff are backed-up by a small dedicated team of fundraisers and volunteers who work with the people and businesses of Bury, through fundraising, hospice lottery and the hospice shops, to ensure that the money is there to keep the Hospice open!

I was in Bury Hospice as an inpatient and in daycare. Awesome people. Thanks to them, I'm still alive. I had cancer in 2004, still here, was hours away from losing it. Bury Hospice and it's staff saved my life. Give generously.

Bury Hospice cared for my Mum in the final 10 days of her life. While they could not change the fact that she was going to die, they did absolutely everything else they could to make her and we as her family, as welcome and comfortable as possible. We were all allowed to spend her final days with her and she was not in pain. Thank you, thank you, thank you
