In April 2006 the two hospice charities formerly St Julia’s Hospice and Mount Edgcumbe Hospice, merged into the single charity Cornwall Hospice Care – a truly Cornish charity.
The name was chosen to better reflect the breadth of services the charity offers to patients and their families throughout the whole community of Cornwall.
As a charity we aim to deliver specialist care to those struggling with complex symptoms triggered by terminal illnesses. It’s not just cancer, but other illnesses such as Motor Neurone disease and heart and lung diseases. We also offer practical, emotional and spiritual support to them, their family and their carers.
