Rossendale Hospice is a wonderful charity, local to us here at WeBuyBooks. They provide exceptional care for people with life-limiting illnesses and offer support to their loved ones. From day therapy to a hospice at-home service, Rossendale Hospice are truly a pillar of the community.
Rossendale Hospice cares for patients with life-limiting conditions, including cancer, Motor Neurone Disease (MND), Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Chronic Lung Disease (COPD). They provide a range of services to improve the life quality of patients and their families.
That includes a hospice at home service for people who would prefer to live, receive care and die at home. It encompasses standard nursing, pain management as well as practical support around the home. This not only benefits the patient but also gives carers a break. This service is available for patients in palliative care, so they can spend the remainder of their life at home according to their wishes.
Rossendale Hospice doesn’t just provide medical care, but also offers a well-being service to support patients’ emotional, social and mental needs. This includes activities like games, art therapy, beauty treatments and access to the sensory garden. The well-being service is supported by a social worker, specialist consultant and palliative physiotherapy specialist so that patients can access the support they need. They also offer a range of complementary therapies like massage, hydrotherapy and Reiki to help relieve stress and physical symptoms.
They also offer counselling for patients and their loved ones. Patients can access counselling and psychotherapy to help them cope with any fear, anxiety, depression and any other emotion they might feel. Their families and close friends are also able to access pre and post-bereavement therapy. Pre-bereavement counselling can help loved ones cope with the emotional strain of caring for a loved one, as well as fears about losing them. Post-bereavement therapy is there to support through the grieving process.
As a charity, only 25% of Rossendale Hospice’s £1 million running costs are funded by the government. They are responsible for raising the remaining £750,000 themselves. Most of this comes from individual donations and fundraising, like sponsored walks, skydiving and bake sales.
