Weston Hospicecare - A Charity Close To Our Hearts

Supporting the local community and causes is something everyone here at BWOC are extremely passionate about. We like to be able to give back to the community and see how we can help them to achieve their goals.

Weston Hospice have been providing palliative care for over 30 years to those with life-limiting illnesses. They rely on fundraising as the care they provide is completely free of charge. The amazing team at Weston Hospice not only deliver treatment for patients with cancer but those with other conditions such as motor neurone disease, Parkinson’s disease and many other life-limiting conditions.

As well has having their base, Jackson-Barstow House where there is a 10 bedroom inpatient unit with a day and wellbeing centre, they also have a team of community nurse specialists who care for patients and their families in their homes. They provide this service to residents of Weston-super-Mare and the surrounding area.

Every team member of Weston Hospicecare works in tandem with other local clinicians such as GPs, consultants and other medical professional to ensure the patients are comfortable and informed about their condition at all times. Plus, with their fantastic Family Support Team, they can provide world-class social, emotional and spiritual support to families who care for loved ones and patients too.
