About the Hospice

We rely so much on the support of the local community as our specialised services are provided totally free of charge.  With approximately 40% of our income coming from the local NHS, we rely on the support and goodwill of the local community to help us raise £16,039 each day to provide doctors, nurses, counsellors and therapists for the 1,400 people we care for at any one time.  With the number of people needing specialised palliative care and bereavement support growing each year, we rely on your generosity more than ever.

Farleigh Hospice History

For 35 years, Farleigh Hospice has been the only organisation providing specialist Hospice care, free of charge, for the people of mid Essex affected by cancer and any other life limiting illnesses.

Medical, nursing and therapeutic care is provided in a homely and welcoming setting for the community of Chelmsford, Braintree, Maldon, Witham and surrounding villages serving a population of 370,000.

What is Hospice Care?

Farleigh cares for people with a range of life limiting illnesses. Most referrals will be for people with progressing or advanced cancer however an increasing proportion of people have other life limiting conditions including heart failure, renal failure, advanced chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and neurological conditions.

Hospice care helps people to live as actively as possible from the point at which their illness is diagnosed as incurable to the end of their lives; palliative care is provided alongside active treatments and interventions. Care carries on for families and carers beyond the death of the person.

Care is provided by a Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) who have undergone recognised specialist palliative care training.  The MDT offer care that strives to achieve the best quality of life for the patient for as long as possible, which involves managing and anticipating pain and other symptoms and addresses the psychological, social and spiritual needs of the person.   Alongside patient care Farleigh Hospice provides services for people who care for or support someone affected by a life limiting illness (carers, friends and family members),

While most professionals have responsibility for good palliative and end of life care, palliative care professionals provide support, guidance and expertise to other teams particularly in complex situations. They have an important role in the education of other professionals and for ensuring high standards of care.

Your support is greatly appreciated.
