Hospice Care


Residential Care
Quality residential care comes at a price, but ensures the person’s well being and brings peace of mind. Also high quality residential care may result in longer life expectancy. However when people live longer, their money can run out, especially when savings interest rates are low and they have not received any advice on planning to pay for their private residential health care.


Here at the George Thomas Hospice, we go to great lengths to provide appropriate levels of care, including installing showers for elderly people who can't get into the bath, and special chairs for elderly people who can't stand in the shower.

We also arrange for sweet treats for our team and our patients

Care for the Elderly ...


There is a common misbelief that a hospice is where everyone goes to die. That is not true. The average stay in a hospice is twelve to fourteen days, after which many patients return home.


NAHF What Is A Hospice

The hospice is not just a place where people come to die. Many go back home again; many carers are glad of the respite to re-charge their batteries and re-kindle their commitment to those they love. see Funding Care for the Elderly
