Hospice Care Week 2016

Today marks the start of Hospice Care Week 2016, that will run from the 3rd till the 9th of October.

Richard House will be joining forces with up to 200 other hospices across the UK to help raise public awareness and surprise people with just what hospice care is, and what it can mean to children and young people with life-limiting conditions and their families.

This year for Hospice Care Week we are asking everyone to join Richard House staff and volunteers in sharing what “hospice care is” and what it means to them, their families and the community. The aim of the week is to show everyone how hospice care can be anything from pain relief to fun days out with other children and families.
