My mother recently passed away in the hospice. The nursing and staff and the doctors are out of this world. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The kindness shown to my mother and ourselves was fantastic. It is some comfort to know that my mother passed away in the place where she wanted to be and that the care she received surpassed all our expec­tations. The hospice is a wonderful place with wonderful staff. There are not sufficient words in the English vocabulary to describe how wonderful they all are. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you did for my mother and my sisters in helping my mother to pass away in a peaceful and dignified way.

My wife Josie was admitted into the hospice on the 3rd April 2014 after a suggestion by a hospice clinical nurse specialist, to offer some respite and pain control which I was finding difficult to administer at home. We hoped to return home after a short stay, to commence chemo,­however this was not to be and Josie passed away on the 16th April with me at her side. She passed away peacefully and pain free due to the care and kindness given by all the staff and volunteers to whom I will be eternally grateful.
I also wish to thank the staff and volunteers for the kindness and compassion shown to Josie's sisters, my sister and friends who visited during Josie's stay in the Hospice.

Sadly my husband Ken passed away on 8th Aplril 2013
At first he was reluctant to be admitted but overcame his fears once he had been shown around the Hospice and had spoken to some of the staff, he was admitted initially for 2 weeks to try to get his pain under control, however he was not responded to chemotherapy and finally succumbed to overwhelming infection. The care my husband received whilst in the Hospice was absolutely first class and could not have been any better if we had been paying £10,000 a week, not only did the staff care for Ken they cared for our family as well and we will be forever grateful. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts and may you continue to give your love to those who you care for in the future,.

A little late as I have only just found this page. On the 21st
June 2011 my beloved husband Harry Hilton died in the Hospice. The care we were both given was second to none. At the end he was in great pain and I stayed and slept there fortunately I was
with him when he passed away. Never have either of us known such wonderful people it gave a little light into what was a dark time. I thank you all so much.
