In celebration of World Hospice and Palliative Care Day – a day dedicated to highlighting hospice and palliative care around the world – we want to shine a light on our partnered charity, Julia’s House.
As a children’s hospice, Julia’s House is dedicated to providing care for children with life-shortening and life-threatening conditions, as well as offering a crucial support network for the whole family.
By being there for both children and their loved ones, the team at Julia’s House can help ensure families spend quality time together. They can also give parents and carers a much-needed break and put them in touch with others in similar situations, so they don’t feel isolated and alone.
Not only does the team at Julia’s House provide highly specialist support, but they also give it to those who need it, completely free of charge.
Their support includes:
- Neonatal care
- Daytime and occasional overnight care in the hospice
- Tailored care in the home and out in the community
- Support for individuals transitioning into adult care
- End-of-life care
- Contributions to funeral costs
At every point possible, the team focus on having fun. From sleepovers to play therapy, every step of the child’s journey is designed to be an opportunity to laugh and make friends.
