Hospiscare was formed in 1982 with two community nurses and the hospice was opened in 1992. They are an Exeter based local, independent charity which provides high quality care and support to people with a progressive life-limiting illness and those close to them living in Exeter, East and Mid Devon.
Their expert team of doctors and nurses will help from the day of diagnosis to the last days of life.
They employ a team of specialist nurses to work in the community visiting people in their own homes, community hospitals, residential and nursing homes. Last year they cared for 2,225 patients, their families and loved ones.
Their teams of nurses and assistant practitioners offer specialist advice and support every day of the year, a telephone advice line is open 24 hours a day. During the financial year 2014/15 they supported 22,037 callers.
They also offer complementary therapies, services for carers, chaplaincy, bereavement support and a car driving service.
They have a specialist nursing team working at the RD&E Hospital.
They provide free care for patients and their families.
It costs Hospiscare £6.4m a year to provide a wide variety of services, with £1.25m funded by the NHS and the rest by fundraising events, community and business support, Hospiscare retail services, grants and gifts in Wills.
