Dorothy House welcomes all patients to this section of our website
The web-site is organised in sections about your individual care, group care, information available to download, access to our A-Z information, other facilities that are available and how you can be referred to our services.
Being diagnosed with a life-limiting illness should not mean that ‘normal’ life grinds to a halt. However, many people need help to deal with the consequences of such a diagnosis.
We hope that the information provided will help you to decide what Dorothy House services you might like to access. There is a specific section to highlight the support that is also available for those who might care for you. All services are available free of charge to those who need them.
We have trained volunteers working alongside our professional teams, under supervision, both at the hospice in Winsley and out in the community.
Please feel free to offer any comments on what we have provided here or to request additional information that would be of use to you.
Safeguarding adults and children
Dorothy House is committed to promoting the wellbeing of all adults and children who use our services and ensuring that they live a life that is free from harm, abuse and neglect. We work in an open and transparent way and encourage staff, volunteers, patients and families to raise any safeguarding concerns. The professional lead for safeguarding adults and children is Susanna Watson, Team Leader of the Family Support Team.
