We are so blessed to have this wonderful resource right in the heart of our Benefice at Ridlington.

DOVE Day Hospice – Rutland provides  day care for people with a life limiting illness, giving their carers  much needed respite.

Founded on Christian principles, the hospice welcomes anyone who can benefit from its services. People are often not aware that they can self refer. Following a home visit, the Clinical Lead advises whether time at the HOSPICE would be beneficial.

At present  the hospice does not deal with people with dementia. If there was sufficient need for this service, Dove would identify the viability of offering a dedicated day for dementia sufferers in the future.

We are self funding and rely on the generosity of the  people of Rutland to fund this much needed facility.

A team of unpaid volunteers cook a 3 course lunch, run sessions for arts and craft, pilates, meditation, massage and other events.The hospice relies on the volunteers who support the team of palliative care professionals

Last year,we managed to raise £26,000, we need £50,000, so ideas for fundraising are gratefully received

We are grateful for your support. May we wish you and your families a Very Happy New Year.
