At all times Beaumond House Hospice works hard to keep its patients and staff safe whilst continuing to provide much needed care for people who are at the end of their lives and this has not changed.

The Hospice is committed to continuing to support people in their own homes through the at home visiting service and through telephone support. Day patients have regular support over the phone with familiar voices from the day therapy team of staff and volunteers. The in-patient beds offer support for people who are at the end of life and for those needing extra care and nursing expertise for symptom management.

Help for those needing support in bereavement continues as a telephone service at a very challenging time for those who are coping with loss.

Please call 01636 610556 if you need Beaumond House Community Hospice care and support or for more information.

You may have seen the charity's urgent campaign in recent press and social media. Beaumond House is facing a £300,000 shortfall as a result of coronavirus. Since the lockdown began last month, fundraised income and income from Beaumond's shops, has reduced by around 95% while care costs have significantly increased.

Keeping the hospice open at all times is imperative; it needs the support of the whole community now, even more than usual.

There are many ways to support the hospice through these difficult times, by donating to the #fillthegapBH campaign, to setting up your own virtual challenge/event as part of Freestyle15. You can be as crazy and creative as you like! Find out more about Freestyle15 here.
