The Ed's House Expansion is Complete!

We're thrilled to announce that the Ed's House Expansion project, which officially began on February 5th, has now reached its completion! Thanks to the dedicated efforts of the construction crew at Dalren Limited, our vision has swiftly transformed into a tangible reality. We appreciate their unwavering commitment to minimizing disruptions, ensuring a smooth journey toward the finish line.

We are thankful to the entire construction team for their hard work and commitment throughout this journey. Your diligence and expertise have made this expansion possible, allowing us to enhance our community service by transforming four "future" suites into spaces capable of accommodating more individuals. With our capacity increasing from 6 to 10 beds, we can further elevate our care provision for our residents.

We would like to also express our graditute to Dalren Limited also for their support of Handbags for Hospice 2024. 

We want to express our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has supported us along the way. Your contributions have played a vital role in making this project a reality.

Thank You!

Last week, we celebrated the remarkable dedication of nurses and staff at Ed's House Northumberland Hospice Care Centre during National Hospice Palliative Care Week and Nurses Week. Their unwavering commitment ensures countless individuals and their families can embrace life fully, regardless of the stage of illness. Let's remember, palliative care is a vital resource for everyone, touching lives in various ways. This week, let's unite in acknowledging the invaluable contributions of these caregivers. Thank you to the nurses and staff who make such a profound difference.

"Join the celebration of the incredible care that helps countless people and their loved ones live their lives fully, at every stage of illness. Life-limiting illness touches us all in many ways...Palliative Care is for You."
