Dorothy House Hospice Care



Dorothy House Hospice Care was started in 1976 and provides compassionate caring for its local community, supporting people with life-limiting illness to live well and die well.

Every day, the charity supports around 700 families affected by cancer, heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and other life-limiting conditions.

Dorothy House serves a community of 550,000 across Bath, north and west Wiltshire and north east Somerset; providing a range of patient services including dedicated end of life and respite care in our in-patient unit, out-patient and day-patient services, hospice at home care, nurse specialists and a 24 hour advice line for professionals, patients and their families.

Most of the charity’s care is provided in people’s own homes as that is where the majority of patients prefer to be but regardless of location all of Dorothy House Hospice Care’s services are provided free of charge and only possible with the generous support of the local community.

Over 70% of Dorothy House’s income needs to be raised from voluntary sources and the charity needs to raise over £9,000 each and every day. Your support of the care provided at Dorothy House Hospice Care will make a real difference to patients and their families.
