On 7 November 2020, a team of Hospiscare heroes will be setting out on the Himalayan Trek, in aid of Hospiscare. The team will be trekking 53 kms down gorges, up hills, through forests, along rivers and up more hills, all to raise money for Hospiscare! The team will also spend time volunteering at a hospice in Kathmandu.
Hospiscare services include a 12-bed ward at Searle House in Exeter and three Day Hospices: Searle House, Pine Lodge & Kings House. Over the last year, our 42 community nurse specialists cared for more than 2,000 patients in their own homes. We also provide a 24-hour telephone advice line which handles more than 25,000 calls per year, as well as complementary therapy, chaplaincy and bereavement support. The money raised by our heroic trekkers will enable Hospiscare to continue to be there for terminally ill patients and their families when they need it most.
So on behalf of all our patients, their families & Hospiscare staff thank you!
