Receiving a diagnosis of a life-limiting illness has a huge impact on the whole family. Having someone to turn to for compassionate care and specialist support is so important at this time and the services Rennie Grove provides in the heart of the local community are all designed to offer this crucial support.
Whether the diagnosis is cancer, heart disease, respiratory disease, or a neurological or other life-limiting illness, we are committed to helping everyone live the best quality life they can, from the point of diagnosis until the end of their lives, in control of their choices at all times, and to support the whole family to enable this happen.
By offering the right services to meet people’s needs, we can support them to stay out of hospital and at home with their families – where most people want to be – helping them to make the most of every moment together.
“Before I started visiting Grove House for myself I thought it was a traditional hospice building with inpatient beds for people who were at the end of their lives. But when you find out everything that is on offer here – for patients as well as their families – you realise that it’s very different.
“Grove House is a place that helps you start living again and not a place you come to die.
“I think it’s important that people move away from thinking that Rennie Grove and the team of staff and volunteers at Grove House are only there to provide care to people at the end of their lives. While this is an important part of what they do, they do so much more.
“For me now it’s all about living with not dying from cancer. Grove House is certainly helping me to do that.”
