What people have said about us

“You looked after our aunt in her final days 14 years ago and you also cared for a distant relative in her final days in December last year. Thank you for everything you do."
Relative of patient
“To the ellenor nurses, thank you so much for the care and support provided to X and family over the past few years. It is very much appreciated.”
Relative of patient
“Unfortunately, my husband X passed away on X. I feel compelled to write this note to you in thanks for all the help and guidance given to me whilst caring for X at home. During these terrible times of the pandemic, without the ellenor team I would have been completely alone. Special thanks to Julie and the team of nurses for their professionalism, kindness and never-ending patience. Also, thanks to Claire the Occupational Therapist. Many thanks again.”

How our Respite Care Team Help Bring the Dreams of Children and Families to Life

Central to our charity's ethos is the principle of ‘holistic’ care. This means caring not only for the patient but supporting their family members in a variety of ways. It also involves taking into account not only the child’s clinical requirements, but their emotional, social, and psychological needs, too. To do this, we offer a range of wellbeing services, including counselling, play and music therapy, and respite care.
