The new St Wilfrid’s Hospice has officially opened its doors in Bosham.
New patients are now set to experience the future of end of life care in the community with the soft opening of St Wilfrid’s brand new £16.2 million home in Walton Lane, Bosham.
The new hospice officialy opened to patients on Monday, July 8, with many enhanced facilities and a brand new environment.
Welcoming and calming family areas enable family and friends to make the most of every moment with their loved one, staying over if they wish. Two of these rooms will be larger still, to enable families with children to stay overnight.
An expanded Living Well Centre offers a greater variety of therapeutic and social activities to boost wellbeing and enable visitors to live more independently for longer.
There is also a chapel and prayer room for personal reflection with a publicly available volunteer-run café for visitors to enjoy coming soon.
Chief executive Alison Moorey said: “Your new hospice will have the feeling of being a home from home for patients, families and visitors alike. St Wilfrid’s is all about tailored care filled with love and compassion.
“We rely on the support of the community for our work to continue each and every year. Please consider a regular donation to St Wilfrid’s to help ensure our care is there for people when they need it for many more years to come.”
The hospice ia encouraging people to sign up for a tour of the new purpose-built building and find out all about the valuable work that St Wilfrid’s does to support people living with terminal or life- limiting illness.
During visits, people will be able to meet staff, ask questions and get advice about the care and support they can offer.
