“The Hospice is just like being in a lovely big house with such a lot of very loving and caring people”.
Our purpose-built ten-bedded In-Patient unit, was officially opened by Her Majesty The Queen in July 2002. A variety of accommodation is provided to suit patients’ needs and all our rooms have en-suite facilities. There are also specially equipped bathrooms where less mobile patients can enjoy a relaxing bath.
A variety of treatments are available in our therapy rooms. Services to patients living with a life-limiting illness and their families are provided free of charge. The unique feature of our In-Patient facility is that people with a life-threatening illness can receive holistic care in a specialist palliative care environment. Patients are able to remain within their own locality, close to friends and family.
Karen Andrew, Senior Nurse in charge of the Inpatients Unit appeared on local TV station ‘Estuary TV recently, take a look;
Some patients visit the In-Patient Unit for short periods to enable us to monitor and control their symptoms. They are then able to return home feeling more comfortble and able to continue with their lives.
Some patients will be admitted for care at the end of their lives when it is not possible to care for them at home. During this time we provide support for their families. Guest accommodation is available to enable them to remain at the Hospice, close to their loved one for as long as is needed. Many people choose to make donations in place of flowers at the funeral of a loved one who has been cared for here at Lindsey Lodge. If you wish to do this it can be arranged with the funeral director.
Lindsey Lodge Hospice
Welcome to Lindsey Lodge Hospice!
We are a warm and welcoming haven aiming to make the most out of those last moments for patients and their families.
In 1992 the hospice was born on Burringham Road, Scunthorpe, with the day care center expanding later to provide 24 hour care and rooms for families to stay over.
Our care for patients with life-limiting conditions such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, motor neuron disease and heart or renal failure is provided free of charge- but unfortunately it's not free to provide.
Although we are financially supported by the NHS, we still need to raise over £1.6 million this year to meet the £2.4 million running costs...that's £4.50 every single minute.
Without your support Lindsey Lodge Hospice would not be the very special place that it is.
A family event displaying over 80 beautifully decorated Christmas trees along with live magical music will bring Christmas cheer to all.
