In the very early days, the hospice began by offering a volunteer home-sitting service and bringing patients to the hospice once a week.
Julie Heath, Treetops Chief Executive explained how the hospice services have developed over time in response to local need:
Our care has changed such a lot over the last 40 years. Now, more than ever, patients are choosing to receive our care in the comfort of their own home.
"We’re also taking our support and information out into the local community to make it even more accessible.
“We support more than 2,000 people and their loved ones every year. This is thanks to the hard work and dedication of our staff, our volunteers who help across the whole hospice and out in our charity shops, and our wonderful supporters.
Without them all, we just wouldn’t be the charity we are today.
We have several birthday celebrations planned throughout the rest of the year. This includes a car raffle and distributing birthday cake through Treetops charity shops plus several surprises throughout the year to say thank you to our supporters.
