Palliative Care

Pilgrims Hospices provides specialist palliative care to patients and their carers across East Kent.

Their vision for hospice care is that everyone should have access to the services they need to cope with a life limiting illness.

This may start quite early in your diagnosis to help with advance care planning or at any time you and your health professional feel you need our input.

We aim to support and empower you, your family, and friends to live well and achieve a good quality of life. This is achieved through our multi-disciplinary team who might see you in a Pilgrims Therapy Centre, an outpatient clinic, or your own home. 

We also provide an Inpatient Palliative care team which includes: doctors, nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, and counsellors. They also offer spiritual support and access to complementary therapies.
