Who we are and what we do

Hospice at Home West Cumbria (HHWC) was established in 1987 to provide palliative and end of life care to patients and their families across West Cumbria. Home nursing is at the heart of HHWC and we provide skilled nursing support on a one-to-one basis to adults with a life limiting illness. Many people wish to remain in their own homes and our home nurses allow them to do this, to spend their final days surrounded by their loved ones and familiar things.

In addition to our home nursing service we provide bereavement support to patients, families and carers. This support is available both before and after bereavement and helps with coping, loss, grief and bereavement.

We have a long established specialist lymphoedema service, the only service of its kind in West Cumbria and provide treatments and support at our therapy centre in Workington and in the patients homes where necessary.

Over the last 32 years HHWC has cared for thousands of patients and their families through difficult times in their lives, we must raise over £1 million each year to maintain these services.

All our services are provided FREE of charge to those who need them.
