Road to Refurb

The ongoing generosity of the local community enables us to continue to develop our services beyond the doors of the hospice into patients own homes across North Staffordshire and surrounding villages. However our Inpatient Unit remains at the heart of everything we do.  For so many families, the Inpatient Unit has become a place to make memories with loved ones and cherish precious final moments together. Since we first opened our doors in 1973 our dedicated staff and volunteers have cared for thousands of local people and their families.

Although some modernisation and redecoration has taken place over the years, we know it is time to undertake a significant refurbishment of the Inpatient Unit to mirror the outstanding quality of care being delivered. We started on the road to refurbishment earlier this year with a new roof and now we need you to join us as the journey continues.

The aim is to revamp and equip the unit to meet the complex and diverse needs of our patients, driving forward the specialist care we provide. As supporters begin raising money for this project we still need to generate £12m running costs each year and we need your help with this challenge. We hope you will be inspired to help and will consider giving either a regular or one-off gift.

“The new patio doors that will be installed will provide fantastic access to the gardens. As a keen gardener my Dad spent much of his time at Dougie
Mac gazing out of the window admiring the beautiful flowers. To give patients the added bonus of getting outside will be brilliant.”

Sharon Johnson, daughter of Ian Johnson

“We’ve been sharing a room here and loved every second. The staff are amazing, kind and obliging; the atmosphere is brilliant and really
takes the stress off your shoulders. Everyone needs to rally around to help our local hospice so they can continue
supporting people like us”
