Dove House Hospice
Who we are
Our services are free of charge and available to anyone over the age of 18 years who has an illness which can no longer be cured. Care is provided for patients with cancer, neurological illnesses, heart diseases, respiratory diseases and many other illnesses. Our care incorporates physical, social, psychological and spiritual support delivered by a multi-professional team who embrace the family and significant others throughout the patient's illness.
The patient and their family are at the centre of everything we do - the patient, not the illness, is the focus of our care. We aim to give not only specialist care but special care, embracing our patients with warmth, understanding and friendship whilst offering them and their families guidance and support during difficult times.
We provide lots of different types of care and support for the people who need the hospice and work closely with the local community to ensure our services can be accessed by all who need us.
Dove House Hospice has a total yearly running cost of £6.6 million and is funded for the equivalent of just 40 days per year, the funds for the other 325 days we have to raise ourselves. Without people in our local community getting involved and deciding to raise funds for Dove House Hospice we could not continue to keep helping people in Hull and East Yorkshire who are living with life limiting illnesses.
