Caring for Life
Longfield hospice provides care and support, 365 days per year for adults in Gloucestershire living with a life-limiting illness, their carers, families and the recently bereaved. All services are provided free-of-charge with the aim for patients and families being “Living Well, Dying Well and Caring Well.” This is achieved across a number of services including Hospice at Home, Counselling, Day Services and Therapies, Group Work and Education and Training.
How your support helps Longfield
At Longfield we believe every person in Gloucestershire who is touched by a life-limiting illness should be able to get free hospice care. We are a charity which relies on voluntary donations for 85% of our income.
We recognise and understand that a diagnosis of a life-limiting illness brings a difficult and emotional time. Here at Longfield we listen to our patients to help answer worries and questions, and support them and those around them.
