Building the Future

Exciting Developments are Coming to Your Local Hospice

We are incredibly proud of the care, support, and services that we provide here at ellenor. After 30 years of delivering care and support services from the original Lions Hospice building, we are pleased to announce that ellenor will be expanding the building by developing the Wellbeing Wing and staff facilities.

In 1992, Lions Hospice first opened its doors to patients offering a 10-bed ward to support the work that was already being undertaken in the community. A new wing and further three bedrooms were added to Lions Hospice in 2008.
