Longfield Hospice vision is that everyone touched by life limiting illness has free care and support to live well, from diagnosis to the end of life.
Longfield makes a profound difference to the life quality of people in Gloucestershire, when they need it most. Longfield was set up 30 years ago to fill a gap in the holistic care and support for adult patients with life limiting illness in this part of the county.
Longfield is a forward thinking community hospice providing care to adults diagnosed with cancer or other life limiting illness, and their families, gently supporting them through the challenges they might face before, during or after medical treatment. In the words of the founder of the modern hospice movement, Dame Cecily Saunders, we are here to ‘help people live well until they die’. Helping to improve wellbeing, to support people to feel more in control, to relax, to manage their symptoms better, to express how they feel, and be supported to make challenging decisions.
And we are here for patients at the end of life. We provides holistic care, looking after patients‘ physical, medical and spiritual care needs in their own home so they can die well and with dignity at home, if that is their choice.
Longfield also looks after friends and family who are carrying out the demanding role of unpaid carer, when they are exhausted or afraid or possibly neglecting their own wellbeing. And we support them to cope with loss and grief, helping them, when the time is right, to begin to move forward with their own lives.
Longfield is dedicated to reaching out to and supporting more adults in our community living with life limiting illness. Over the past two years we have developed our care services, including our programme of living well services in community locations across the city and surrounding area of Gloucester.
