Join Team Dorothy House and help raise vital funds to deliver care to people with a life-limiting illness in our community!

We provide palliative and end of life care to adults with a progressive, treatable but not curable life-limiting illness or with severe frailty, and also their family, children and carers.

We care for people across our 700sq mile catchment area which covers Bath & North East Somerset (BaNES), and parts of Wiltshire and Somerset, including Frome. Our services provide physical, psychological and/or spiritual support, and are free of charge. We’re available day and night to ensure that you have the right care, at the right time.

When someone is ill, it’s not just the patient who is affected. Life can be turned upside down for the family and for friends and carers.

That’s why we’re here for you, for as long as you need.

In 2022/23 we:
Cared for 2,846 patients across our community
Supported 936 family members and carers
Delivered 30,896 hours of Hospice at Home care
Hosted 5,190 psychological support sessions
Investigated 33 research projects
Lyn Farmer – Patient story

A FREE Dorothy House running vest
