our nursing care is the best
Tynedale Hospice at Home is a local charity covering the wider communities of Tynedale, West Northumberland and Ponteland. Unlike many traditional hospices, we take our care to those who need it, in a place of their choice. This enables people with a terminal illness, to be cared for in the comfort of their own homes, surrounded by family and friends, at one of the most difficult times of life.
Last year our professionally trained staff and volunteers cared for 200 local people. Each patient is treated as an individual and our hands-on staff and volunteers take care to cater to their specific needs.
Last year we also provided hospital transport free of charge to 109 people, making 609 journeys, covering 34,000 miles.
All our services are provided free of charge to those who need them, therefore we rely on the generous and continued support of people in our community who fundraise for and give to our services. Our annual running costs are just over £700,000, and 90% of this must be raised through voluntary donations and gifts in Wills.
