Compton Hospice Limited

Compton Hospice is a Wolverhampton based charity who has been supporting patients facing a life-limiting illness, and their families, for over 30 years. Our services are provided free of charge.

Founded 1982

  • Mission statement

    Compton Hospice is a place to find shelter on the most difficult part of life's journey - offering a helping hand, a listening ear, and the caring support of people who understand.

    Our purpose is to make a difference to people’s lives when their illness is no longer curable. We do this by treating people, not conditions, whether their needs are physical, psychological, social or spiritual.

    A fully qualified team of doctors, nurses and support workers are on hand to provide the best possible care for patients and their families during a very difficult period.

    Our day therapy centre provides respite care for 20 visitors each day and a unit dedicated to the treatment of lymphoedema helps thousands of people each year.

    We also offer bereavement support to adults and children, helping relatives through the difficult process of the loss of a loved one. Social workers, physiotherapists and complementary therapists have increased the services provided and holistic treatments such as reiki, aromatherapy and massage help hundreds of patients each year.

    Our services are available free-of-charge to people in Wolverhampton, Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall, South Staffordshire and East Shropshire.
