Making Every Moment Matter Weldmar Team group photo

Weldmar Hospicecare is a Dorset charity providing specialist end of life care for adults with a life limiting illness, and support for their loved ones. 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 17% of our funds are provided by the NHS – we need to raise £27,500 per day, with the support of the local community, in order to continue our services.

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.
