Our Charity was set up in 2002 to provide additional palliative and respite care for individuals with life threatening illnesses, and support for their families. At that time there was no organisation based locally that catered solely for the needs of terminally ill people and their loved ones.
As a result of the great generosity of our local communities, and the tireless efforts of our volunteer fundraisers, we have gone beyond achieving our initial aim of building a Hospice facility in Louth.
Louth Hospice was completed and then opened in August 2013, and serves as a Daycare Centre now leased to St. Barnabas Hospice Lincolnshire, who provide a range of services in and from the building on Grimsby Road, Louth.
The Charity Louth & District Hospice Limited continues to raise funds, and now commissions other services to enable people with life changing or life limiting illnesses to receive help in their own homes, or take part in activities within their community, services which are free at the point of need, to the many qualifying individuals in our area.
We continue to fund the much valued ‘Home Support Service’, delivered by Age UK to local people with palliative care needs. This provides free domestic assistance, and allows those receiving the service to obtain help with dignity and care whilst they remain in their own homes.
A new service, launched November 2016 and entitled ‘Still Me’ now sees Magna Vitae, working in partnership with Louth & District Hospice Limited, arranging and delivering a variety of activities and one-to-one sessions aimed at improving quality of life for those experiencing and affected by a number of illnesses not immediately considered life threatening, but life changing, such as Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
