South Bucks Hospice

We provide palliative and end of life care to individuals with life-limiting illnesses

Charity Registration No. 1128881

Story

South Bucks Hospice (SBH) is an amazing building full of passionate and caring staff. They are not just caring for Andy, or preparing him for his end of life  but heavily supporting myself and the children. 

I have received some individual counselling and and I am being given lots of  guidance in how best to support my boys through the next stages of Andys illness.
The services that they are able to provide,  include complimentary therapies for Andy to help manage his pain  which would not be otherwise available to him. The nurses are committed to 'old-fashioned' nursing which will include teaching Andy how to maintain as much
independence as possible, for as long as possible as well as simply listening and hand-holding.

My favourute strapline that I have read in their leaflets is 'WE PUT THE KETTLE ON...' which completely summarises their approach to care.

SBH are due to move premises to a purpose built site where many more services can be offered, but funds are still required to complete their target.This new building will become a safe place for Andy and I and will ensure that complimentary therapies are available to ease some pain and discomfort that is being felt both physically and emotionally.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure.. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the Hospice.
