Our Services

Our hospices remain open 24/7, providing 20 beds for terminally ill patients who need us.

Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, patients staying at our hospices can still be visited, however we have had to change our policy and introduce some additional guidance for those wishing to visit their loved ones.  Click the button to see our latest advice.

Please remember that all our shops AND donation centres are closed as a result of the current national lockdown.  Please do not leave any donations outside our premises as our staff are not there to deal with them and we will have to pay for disposal.

Upcoming Events

We have some exciting new virtual events to challenge you through lockdown and beyond!

Our Hospice to Hospice Virtual Challenge is aimed at all abilities and ages and runs from early January until Sunday 21st February.  Get outside, get motivated and stretch your legs with a walk, jog, run and cover the 37 miles between our two hospices, but somewhere local to you (that’s less than a mile a day!).  Record your miles, let us know when you’ve completed it and we will send you a lovely medal to recognise your achievement plus that fuzzy warm feeling you’ll get by supporting your local hospices.

Or if getting on your bike and pedalling the miles is more your thing, how about joining us on our virtual ride from Land’s End to John O’Groats?  You’ll have all year to cover the 874 miles local to you, with fun and support from us along the way, a beautiful medal at the end of your route and of course the satisfaction that you’ve helped fund our keyworker teams.

Terry's Bed Appeal

On October 1st we launched Terry’s Bed Appeal and your generosity has been incredible.  Terry was cared for at Mount Edgcumbe Hospice during lockdown and his sheer relief at the peace and comfort he found meant he was concerned for others in the same position as him, knowing the impact the coronavirus pandemic is having on charities.

Kate is another patient, who’s very keen to share her experience of the care she’s been receiving.  When Kate arrived at Mount Edgcumbe Hospice she’d been in a coma for 3 days after brain surgery.  She’d faced a tough 7 years since an initial breast cancer diagnosis and recently was barely able to move.

With the support of our team, Kate has started to improve and planned to take a few small steps to raise money for us, dressed as Santa.  Watch our film to see how she has progressed.  Kate hopes you’ll give generously so that we can keep her bed open.

Kate's Story

Sponsor Kate on her “Mini Major Tom Challenge” to walk her steps in a Santa suit, on her JustGiving page HERE, supporting us as part of  Terry’s Bed Appeal.

Cornwall Hospice Care Covid-19 statement

Cornwall Hospice Care has ensured Covid-19 risk assessments have been carried out in all areas of our charity. Where required, adjustments have been made to ensure working environments are as Covid secure as is practically possible.

The safety of our patients, their families, our staff, volunteers, customers and supporters is paramount. We work closely with all relevant authorities and advisory bodies to ensure we are following current guidelines, implementing any changes as necessary.

Thank you!

In these challenging times our world has changed in many different ways. However, the one constant has been the care we provide at our two hospices that have remained open 24/7 admitting patients to our 20 end-of-life and specialist palliative care beds.

As a charity we rely heavily on the support of the people of Cornwall, people like you, who leave us legacies, support our virtual fundraising events, play our lottery and donate to, and buy in, our shops and donation centres.

Thank you, we need you now more than ever!
