Our philosophy is to be a specialist provider of Palliative Care to our local community. Palliative care is the total care of patients whose disease is not responsive to curative treatment. Control of pain, of other symptoms, and of psychological, social and spiritual problems is paramount. The goal of palliative care is the achievement of the best quality of life for patients and those important to them.
We believe that Palliative care affirms life and regards dying as a normal process. We neither hasten nor postpone death. We aim to provide relief from distressing symptoms whilst integrating the psychological and spiritual aspects of care, offering support to families to help them cope during the patients' illness and in their own bereavement.

Our Rose Garden Appeal is an enduring tribute to a lived relative or friend, planted in the gounds of the Hospice at Pembury, Kent. A red rose may be dedicated in memory of a special friend or loved one. The roses will be planted over the winter to provide a splash of colour inyears to come. You will receive a memorial card and your loved one's name will be recorded in a special Dedication Book which will be on display in the hospice. Whether or not your loved one has received care from Hospice in the Weald, you can create a special place where memories live on. For more information please call Tanyia Ingham on 01892 820 500.
