Sidmouth Hospiscare
Caring for people with life threatening illnesses in the Sid Valley

Our Aims

Our aim is to provide a fully inclusive service to help patients and their carers cope.  We hope to improve their quality of life by making this time less stressful and provide physical and emotional support.

Our Hopes
