Butterwick Hospice Care provides care and therapies to children and adults with life-limiting illnesses and also supports their families and loved ones, both within our hospices and patients homes.
Butterwick Hospice Care aims to improve the quality of life for those who have a progressive life limiting illness and those close to them and to offer positive support for every challenge they encounter during their illness and to see death as part of life's journey.
Provide supportive, specialist palliative care for children and adults with progressive life-limiting conditions, including (but not limited to) cancer, Parkinson's disease, Motor Neurone Disease as well as a diverse range of rarer conditions.
Ensure each person receives care in a homely environment whilst maintaining privacy, dignity and choice.
Provide holistic care by responding to and respecting the patient and those close to them by meeting their individual physical, social, cultural, educational, spiritual and emotional needs throughout the illness and bereavement.
Maintain the high quality of the service through on-going reflection, evaluation and education.
All of our services are free to patients and their families, we offer care to anyone referred to us regardless of age, gender, income, diagnosis or prognosis. We assist patients to enjoy the best possible quality of life, with adequate pain and symptom control, as well as to allow them to make informed choices about their end of life care, and where they wish to die. We use a range of medical staff, complementary therapists and dedicated volunteers to deliver care to our patients drawn from across Teesside, County Durham and beyond.
