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 provided care and support for more than 40 local families, over 200 adults and over 75 children.
Last year we also provided hospital transport free of charge to more than 130 people, making more than 850 journeys, covering more than 47,500 miles.
Less than 10% of our annual running costs are provided by statutory sources which means that 90% of our funds must be raised through voluntary donations and gifts in Wills.
Respect – a confidential service for each individual and their circumstances
Dignity – for those who are dying and their families
Professionalism – our staff and volunteers are trained to give high quality end of life care to terminally ill people
