The Prince of Wales Hospice in Pontefract cares for adults with progressive illnesses, when it is recognised that their illness is no longer curable.
The specialist respite, terminal and palliative care we provide concentrates on our patients' quality of life and on providing a support system for those close to them.
The hospice has 10 single en-suite bedrooms for patients, as well as a day hospice which can accommodate up to 10 people each weekday. We also run a clinic treating patients with Lymphoedema. ALL our services are provided to patients free of charge.
The hospice is open 365 days a year at a cost of over £4000 a day, less than a third of which comes from the government. Our services are available to around 190,000 local people.
* Symptom management
* Terminal care in the later stages of their illness
* Respite care to give carers some relief and to give patients a change from the home environment
* The length of stay offered for respite care would normally be 7 to 14 days, but there may be some flexibility. Respite care cannot usually be offered on a regular basis or far in advance.
It might be that the care you require falls into more than one of these categories, or changes during your time here.
We have accommodation for 10 patients, in single en-suite rooms.
