Weldmar Hospicecare

Weldmar Hospicecare is a Dorset charity providing specialist end of life care for adults with a life limiting illness. Our compassionate approach supports patients and their families in the community, at home, and in our hospice. All of our care is provided free.

We have a dedicated team of nurses, doctors, therapists, social workers and counsellors, but only 21% of our funds are provided by the NHS – the rest is raised for our Dorset charity thanks to the support of the local community.

Our aim is to ensure all adults needing end of life care in Dorset have access to excellent services, delivered when they are needed, meeting individual needs of patients and their loved ones.
