Hospiscare has been supporting people with end of life care since 1982. But we’re not the only ones. It takes an army of healthcare professionals to care for patients, including nurses, social workers, GPs, care home workers and non-clinical staff. If you’re one of them, we thank you.
Hospiscare supports people with a life-limiting illness who live in Exeter, Mid or East Devon. We help patients in a number of ways, from pain management to end of life care.
Our holistic range of courses and workshops are designed to support anyone working in Health and Social Care, from front line clinical teams to all-important support teams.
Give your team the tools they need to deliver excellent palliative care. We can adapt workshops for your team or create a training day specifically for your organisation.
Clinical placements are available in our day hospices, on the ward and with our community team. We also offer a work experience programme for second year A Level students (or equivalent).
All our palliative and dementia care resources are free of charge. They can be used in your own training programmes and to support continuous professional development.
We have a range of meeting rooms available to hire in Exeter, Honiton and Tiverton. Room hire includes free Wi-Fi, white boards, projectors, flip charts etc, and catering is available on request. By booking a room you're supporting the charity.
Do you want to work for one of the most well-respected charities in the South West? We employ around 300 people in roles such as nursing, fundraising, administration, finance and retail.
Looking for your next charity partner or fancy a team volunteering day with a difference? We have lots of fundraising, sponsorship and promotional opportunities to choose from.
We’re always looking for new volunteers and have a huge number of roles to choose from, including complementary therapists, drivers and bereavement counsellors.
The COVID-19 pandemic raises specific challenges for healthcare professionals. These pages contain resources to help you navigate these challenges from a palliative care perspective.
