Hospice Care Week 2021

#HospiceCareWeek #weareellenor

4th - 7th October 2021

Hospice Care Week is an annual event that recognises and celebrates  hospice care within the UK. It's an opportunity to show the value of support, of care and of what matters to us as individuals at the end of life when we need it most.

We Are ellenor

Since 1985, ellenor has been providing compassionate hospice care to those that need it most. Our vision is simple: those facing the end of life should have the best care possible wherever they choose.


Caring for Healthcare Professionals

Education is at the heart of ellenor’s mission to promote and provide hospice care of the highest standards to all those in need. We believe that everyone approaching the end of life has the right to the highest quality care and support, wherever they live, regardless of their condition.

Caring for our Patients

Patients facing a terminal illness sometimes have physical, emotional and spiritual problems that are not improving at home or in hospital. Short admission to the ward gives the team an opportunity to observe symptoms and the effect of treatments, with the aim of lessening their severity and frequency before transfer to another place of care. As well as symptom management, some patients may be admitted for care at the end of life or for respite care, where appropriate.

Caring Holistically for our Patients

Beyond the end of life care you might expect from a hospice, our care includes a variety of holistic approaches to enrich the lives of our patients and their families, as much as we can.
