Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice is one of the oldest hospices in South-East England with 80% of its funding through charitable donation.
Easy access to compassionate supportive and end of life care for patients and families in a place of their choice.
To care compassionately for adults living with an advanced or terminal illness, and those closest to them, so that they have the best possible quality of life and the patients’ final days are peaceful
…because every day is precious
Many of you will know that Lucy lived out her remaining days at home rather than as a resident in a Hospice. However, the Phyllis Tuckwell team provided both Lucy and her family with world class care (regular visits from Nurses, Home care team, Physiotherapy, Counselling, Therapies such as Reflexology and Massage)
There is really no way that we could have made it through this without the support of Phyllis Tuckwell and the NHS District Nurses who were also a regular feature in the house over the final days.
