Hope House - Opens 3rd April

Hospice Hope is delighted to formally announce that Hope House, Griffydam is open from Monday 3rd April.

Since planning permission was granted by North West Leicestershire District Council in the Autumn, the charity has tirelessly worked to adapt the ground floor of this secluded, rural property to provide a friendly, homely welcome to local people with life limiting illnesses, called our guests.

Hope House will open on Mondays and Thursdays from 10.30am through to 3.30pm, where guests will be able to access pastoral support, the company of others, a home-cooked hot two course lunch plus a range of activities and complementary therapies.  The peaceful setting of Hope House promotes a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere for our guests.  Carers benefit too by being able to take time-off from their caring duties, safe in the knowledge their loved-one is being well looked after for the day.

Attendance is by referral only and people can either self-refer or it can be made by a carer, family member or heath / social care professional.  The process is very simple and is initially carried out over the phone.

Leading Hope House is Linda Mould, supported by Hope House’s dedicated cook and complementary therapist, plus our wonderful team of volunteer drivers and group supporters. 

Hospice Hope is entirely self-funded and has been overwhelmed these past few months with the support received from local people, organisations and businesses in terms of fundraising and the donation of goods and time.  Our thanks go out to everyone who has ‘helped make this happen’!
