At Dorothy House, we believe every life is incredibly precious, and no-one should face death alone.
For 46 years we have been at the forefront of providing exceptional palliative and end of life care in Bath and North-East Somerset, Mendip and Wiltshire.
Our expert staff include doctors, nurses, therapists, carers and counsellors, who will see patients at home, in a clinic setting or in a care home. All of our services are provided free of charge, when and where they need it the most. Over 85% of our care takes places in patient’s homes or in community settings.
We are the only specialist providers of this care for adults in this area, and we currently care for over 2500 patients each year.
But we must do more. Not only do more people across our community need our help now, the need for our care is rising at a rapid rate. By 2025, it is predicted that over 5200 people will need palliative care every year.
To help meet this demand, we must evolve. We must adapt and enhance the way we work: bringing outstanding care to more people, closer to their homes and sooner after their diagnosis, giving them more quality time with their family and loved ones.
We have developed a new model of care to help us achieve this. But we cannot do it alone. We need your help to raise the funds necessary to ensure thousands more people receive the care they need at the end of life.
By being part of our ground-breaking ‘Always Here’ appeal, you will help make this a reality.
Thanks to a wonderful group of early pledgers, your donations* made during the 36 hour sprint will be doubled! That means you support will go even further, helping to ensure that no one has to face death alone.
