We provide individual care and total support wherever it is needed; at home, over the phone with our 24/7 advice line, and at the hospice.

We also help adults in north Essex to cope with grief following the death of a loved one, regardless of where or how they died.

We reach out to members of our community, helping them make their own choices and live with dignity.
