About the Hospice
Dorothy House Hospice Care supports people with life-limiting illness, their families and carers. Your help is vital and ensures we can provide palliative and end-of-life care across our 700sq miles. From diagnosis and throughout the journey, we enable patients to live life to the fullest and provide compassionate care to die with dignity.
We are the local Hospice for Bath and North East Somerset and parts of Wiltshire and Somerset, the majority of our care is delivered in the home and the community. All our services are free of charge but providing these services requires significant funds and for every £1 we receive from the NHS, we have to raise £5.
The support of our local community is vital and helps us to be there when it matters most. Thank you for standing with us.
