About Lewis-Manning Hospice Care
Lewis-Manning Hospice Care is in its 30th anniversary year, providing extraordinary care to patients and their families facing a life-limiting illness across Poole, Purbeck and East Dorset.
30 years ago, it was our founder, Mrs Marjorie Lewis-Manning, whose generosity and inspiration started Lewis-Manning Hospice Care, with a vision to help people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.
Without the help of wonderful volunteers, the past 30 years would not have been possible. Their dedication and support have enabled so many people to receive the hospice care they need and deserve.
We offer a range of free hospice care services aimed at helping people to live well through their illness, closer to home.
– Day hospices, virtual and in person
– Creative arts & wellbeing support
– Lymphoedema clinic
– Breathlessness clinic
– Bereavement & family support
Every year we support nearly 500 local people and we develop new services, based on patient need and identified gaps in the area.
To do this we need to raise over £2.3m every year. Without these funds we could not exist.
Our important work increases people’s physical and social well-being, reduces isolation and loneliness, supports people to stay in their homes longer, and alleviates the huge pressures on family and carers.
