Ashgate Hospice Care are an independent registered charity that provides care to patients across North Derbyshire as a hospice, in the community and at Chesterfield Royal Hospital.
The hospice offers a place for patients to enjoy their last days without suffering and in the company of the people who care. The services are free of charge to patients with any life limiting illness, as well as the provision of support to patient’s families for as long as needed.
What is Hospice care?
Hospice care provides pain relief and symptom control to people with any life-limiting illness as well as emotional, spiritual and social care and support. The majority of hospice care is delivered to patients in their home. The goal of hospice care is to enable its patients to have an alert, pain-free life and live each day as fully as possible.
How is hospice care funded?
All hospice services are free of charge and funded through fundraising and donations with a small contribution from the NHS. Providing the best care possible is extremely expensive and can only be achieved thanks to the generous donations from the community through events just like the Sparkle Night Walk.
At the age of just 20, Kimberley Trickett was told the devastating news that she was terminally ill. Kimberley became a patient at Ashgate Hospital where she and her family were provided the care and support to enable them to enjoy Kimberley’s last days with her creating memories they can cherish forever. This year Kim's mum, Tracie Holocuk, is sparkling in her memory. Hear from Tracie and her family below:
“I can’t thank the hospice enough for the care they provided to Kimberley. I never left her side throughout her time there. I was allowed to have a bed next to her to comfort her and that made the world of difference to us both.”
