The care we offer
The hospices that form CHaL care for children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions and provide support and respite for their families. Our six hospices tailor the care they offer to the needs of the individual child, focus on enhancing quality of life and giving support to the whole family from the point of diagnosis, through life until death. We also support families during the bereavement process.
Many of the conditions faced by the children we support are genetic and extremely rare; and some of the children may live for many years through into adulthood.
Children’s hospices exist to help these children live life as fully as possible. We look beyond a child’s medical needs to discover what makes them sad, what makes them smile and what makes them laugh. We want to create environments where they can be children, not just patients. Our hospices allow families to come together and create memories and precious moments.
